June 29, 2012


TORONTO, June 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – ShawCor Ltd. (TSX: SCL.A, SCL.B) today
announced that its pipecoating division, Bredero Shaw, has received a
contract with a value in excess of US$100 million from McDermott
Australia Pty. Ltd. to provide pipeline coatings and related products
and services for the flowlines and tie-in spools for the Ichthys LNG
Project. This is the second contract Bredero Shaw has received for the
Ichthys LNG Project and is in addition to the contract for the gas
export pipeline announced on February 14, 2012.

The Ichthys LNG Project is a Joint Venture between INPEX (Operator) and
Total. Gas from the Ichthys Field, in the Browse Basin approximately
200 km offshore Western Australia, will be gathered using the risers
and flowlines and will undergo preliminary processing at the offshore
central processing facility to remove water and extract condensate. The
gas will then be exported via an 889 km subsea pipeline to the onshore
LNG facility to be located at Blaydin Point, Darwin, Northern
Australia. The Ichthys LNG Project is expected to produce 8.4 million
tonnes of LNG and 1.6 million tonnes of LPG per annum, along with
approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.

The contract involves coating approximately 148 km of 6″ to 18″ diameter
pipe that will be protected with three-layer polypropylene
anticorrosion coating and Thermotite® multi-layer polypropylene
insulation. Work will commence during the second quarter of 2013. The
company will execute the work at Bredero Shaw’s facilities in Kabil,
Indonesia and Kuantan, Malaysia. The Kabil and Kuantan facilities are
technology-based, full service coating plants that were built
specifically to process large, complex projects in the Asia Pacific
