Pipe sizes from 63mm to 500mm were installed along with vents, drains, risers, branches and well hook ups. The project was supported by Wasco Roma fabrication facility where all inline fabricated items were prepared.
Wasco has provided engineering and multi-disciplined trades and labour to plan and implement the restart of the Kincora Gas Project assets for Armour Energy near Surat, Qld. The project involved up to 40 personnel and included inspection, repair, refurbishment, testing and operation of gas wells, pipelines, dehydration, compression and liquids processing to conclude with production of sales gas for export to Wallumbilla during September 2017 and LPG later in the year. The photo captures the Kincora crew on the date of handover of Dry Gas operations to Armour by Wasco.
In June 2017 Wasco installed 1700m of DN150 and DN100 steel gas pipeline in three sections at Boundary St and Mort St in Toowoomba as a part of Toowoomba Regional Councils road modifications associated with the second range crossing. Wasco installed and tested 3LPE X42 steel pipeline including several difficult HDD crossings and multi-service utility corridors.
