CPI wins pipe supply contract with BP
Composite Pipes Industry (CPI), a manufacturer of glass fibre reinforced plastic (GRP) pipes, has won a contract worth $5 million (€3.6 million) for the supply of pipes and fittings for a 62 km-long pipeline for British oil giant BP.
The company says the corrosion-resistant pipes, to be used on the pipeline in BP's Khazzan field development in Oman, are cost-effective and do not require maintenance and repair.
They can also handle high pressure for flow lines and sour applications.
A company source was quoted saying the contract was awarded in September last year and it takes seven months for qualification testing and production.
