Materia’s Pipeline Insulation for Shell’s Appomattox Development

Materia in conjunction with Aegion has been selected by Shell Offshore to supply pipeline insulation materials for the Appomattox development in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

The Appomattox development is located 80 miles offshore Louisiana, in approximately 2195 meters of water. The insulation system will provide a thermal barrier between flowlines and seawater.

Chuck R. Gordon, Aegion’s president and chief executive officer, said, “The collaboration with Materia will leverage their leading polymer insulation technology, Bayou’s world class coating, logistics and prefabrication capabilities, and Bayou Wasco’s pipe insulation technology for the safe and efficient transportation of crude oil from deepwater oil field developments in the Gulf of Mexico.”

Dr. Michael Giardello, co-founder and senior advisor to Materia, said, “Shell’s safety and performance requirements were rigorous. We were charged with supplying pipeline insulation materials that met their performance requirements, while greatly reducing the complexity of the system.”

Nitin Apte, Materia’s president and chief executive officer, added, “Materia’s thermal insulation provides a simple and cost-effective solution to the challenges of deepwater oil and gas production. We greatly value this relationship with Shell and Aegion, and look forward to solving the thermal insulation challenges for future deepwater projects.”
