Sharjah-based company Ducorr Middle East has completed the design and deployment of its cathodic protection system for Shell Iraq Petroleum Development (SIPD).

The three-year contract covered the implementation of the system on SIPD’s new and existing flowlines in Iraq’s Majnoon Oil Field.

According to Ducorr, the flowlines were buried in “very corrosive soil”, hence the need for protection.

Since the commissioning of a permanent cathodic protection would have taken more than six months, a temporary protection of the flowlines was decided, the company added, noting that the work was carried out in a challenging environment.

A nearby potential minefield reportedly increased safety risks at the project site.

The company announced earlier this year that it had completed contracted work for an Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) distribution project in Ras Al Khaimah Depot.
