Material procurement

MLP procurement (Mechanically Lined Pipe)

MLP pipes, a cost-saving clad pipe technology preferred by major oil and gas operators for sour service oil fields, have been successfully procured by Barruchess Engineering for several fast-track projects. Our technical expertise includes liner CRA procurement and control, hosting C-Mn pipes, managing critical dimensional combinations, limiting wrinkling, controlling triple point welds using PAUT, and conducting final NDT control. We have collaborated with renowned MLP pipe suppliers such as B, Cld, and PCld. Barruchess Engineering is committed to assisting small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) in upgrading their technical skills and fabricating MLP pipes.

Deep water pipelay project

Barruchess Engineering’s experts have been contracted by installation contractors to manage complex and fast-track deepwater pipelay projects in various locations including the USA Gulf of Mexico, Angola, China, and Brazil. With our technical support, the scope of weld procedure qualification testing has been reduced by approximately 30% for each project, allowing for schedule and cost recovery.

HRB pipe procurement (Hot Rolled Bonded)

HRB pipes, the best CRA clad pipe technology available, are rolled and seamed welded from sandwich plates of CRA/C-Mn. Barruchess Engineering has worked on numerous projects involving HRB pipes for pipeline fields and subsea structures. We are dedicated to helping SMEs in the USA procure HRB pipes for their clients, enabling major oil and gas operators to save costs in laying clad pipes for sour service oil fields.                 

Duplex forging procurement

Leading oil and gas operators such as Exxon, Chevron, and BP have required a series of duplex 22%Cr forgings (elbows, flanges, and tees) for their subsea structure and infield pipeline projects. Barruchess Engineering has provided material specifications and ensured quality management of the suppliers.                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

Engineering optimization & gap analysis

In terms of optimization, we offer gap analysis services for various codes, including ASME, American Bureau of Shipping, Det Norske Veritas, Germanischer Lloyds, and the National Board of Boilers and Pressure Vessel Inspectors. We typically conduct gap analysis in the following area:

– Linepipe scope (DNVGL-ST-F101 Vs API 5L)

– Forged pieces (ISO 15590 Vs MSS-SP-XX series)

– Piping (ASME B31.8/B31.3 Vs ISO)

– Structural scope (AWS D1.1 Vs ISO 15614)

When it comes to different material items, challenges often arise when navigating between the use of US codes and international and European codes. At Barruchess Engineering, we employ effective methods to optimize the reliability and performance of design, qualification, and construction within your project scope for linepipe, forged pieces, piping, and structure.

Our Engineering division, comprising a team of qualified engineers, is equipped to handle a wide range of requests. After conducting thorough verifications, including calculations, drawings, engineering projects, welding procedure qualifications, and other critical or specific applications, we provide comprehensive solutions tailored to your needs.


By aligning different supplier designs through gap analysis of their respective codes, we significantly improve the reduction of testing materials from various sources. This approach can lead to a reduction of up to 30-40% in the scope of qualification testing, resulting in substantial cost savings throughout the project management process.

Welding Procedure Qualification Testing & Welders Performance (WPS/WPQT/PQR)

Welding Procedure Certification

Our comprehensive third-party certification service offers a complete package for the production of Welding Procedure Qualification Records (WPQRs) or Procedure Qualification Records (PQRs). Our highly trained and qualified surveyors visit your site and employ a unique company-welder interaction approach to capture all the necessary data for certification. We then coordinate the required testing with our independent ISO17025 accredited laboratory, providing results within a maximum of 5 days. 

All our experts hold certifications in IWE and CSWIP, ensuring their proficiency and competence. With our vast experience and knowledge in welding engineering, we aim to minimize customer involvement and operational disruptions. In an industry where lead times are constantly decreasing, we guarantee a service that will not disappoint. Our unique certification seal is widely recognized as a world-class guarantee of the highest quality performance.
