Clad pipes for the oil and gas industry

Since 1978 BUTTING has been able to demonstrate its core competence in welding, forming and materials technology with a big variety of pipes for onshore and offshore projects and subsea applications. We produce for you flowlines, riser pipes and others for topsides (platform FPSO) as well as line pipes. You may use the economic benefits of both our mechanically lined BuBi® pipe and the metallurgically clad pipe: Reliability and longevity by corrosion resistance. The unalloyed outer pipe controls the pressure, whereas the high-alloyed cladding ensures corrosion protection.

Up to now, BUTTING has produced more than 130 000 tons of pipes in duplex and superduplex for renowned customers, e. g. ExxonMobil, STATOIL, NAM, TotalFinaElf and GULF. "Ichtys" and "Julimar" are names which had a significant impact on the year 2012 within the company. Both are gas fields off the north-west coast of Australia.
