Iracore International completed a long-term agreement with
Shell Canada for the supply of lined pipe and fittings for use
in the Alberta oil sands, the companies said on Friday.
The agreement covers a three-year period and provides Shell
access to a number of Iracores proprietary products and
services for use at the Muskeg River and Jackpine oil sands
This is a significant milestone and validates Iracore
as the premium supplier of lined pipe for the oil sands,
said Rick Brouwer, CEO of Iracore.
We look forward to working closely with Shell to meet
their very specific needs over the next three years and well
into the future.
Iracore has provided lined pipe solutions to major oil sands
mine developers in northern Alberta for more than a decade, the
company said, noting that it has worked at developing and
testing its proprietary urethanes and manufacturing processes
to meet the severe operating conditions.
Iracore says it has since forged relationships with all
existing oil sands mining operators.
Three of the four mines in Ft. McMurray currently have
agreements in place for the supply of Iracore lined
products, according to the company.
