Platform Contract Secured

Akzo Nobel’s International Protective Coatings business in Thailand and Singapore has secured an important new contract.

will supply a total of 110,000 liters of coatings for eight new Unocal offshore platforms destined for the Gulf of Thailand, where they will produce natural gas and condensate for sale to the Petroleum Authority of Thailand.

of the platforms are being constructed in Thailand by an alliance of Unocal, Unithal Shipyard and Clough Engineering. They could not build all eight in Thailand, so the other four have been sub-contracted.

six Unocal platforms are scheduled for 2002.

Corporation is a leading independent petroleum exploration and production company with major oil and gas production activities in Asia, Latin America and the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
