Flexpipe Systems Wins First Major Australian Pipeline Project

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 24, 2012) - Flexpipe Systems has been awarded its biggest Australian project to date. Flexpipe Systems worked closely with Australian distributor Energy Process Services (EPS) and contractor Lean Field Developments (LFD) to secure the sale of 175 kilometers of combined FlexPipe Linepipe and FlexPipe High Temperature Linepipe.

"This is a historic achievement for Flexpipe Systems," says David McColl, Vice President, QHSE and Business Development. "Over the past two years, our team has diligently been working with Australian energy companies and regulators to ensure all engineering design, safety, quality and environmental requirements are met. A project of this magnitude solidifies the presence of Flexpipe products in the Australian market."

Flexpipe Systems went through two years of in depth technical inquiries and testing to complete the AS2885 compliance process, proving the company's suitability for the project. The area in which the project is based is also environmentally sensitive, making FlexPipe Linepipe an even better solution because of its minimal environmental disturbance.

The pipeline project stretches from the remote Cooper Basin region in South Australia to South East Queensland.
