Spieca­pag mo­bilised for ma­jor pipe­line work

The Australian Energy Review - - JEMENA: NORTHERN GAS PIPELINE -

GLOBAL pipe­line con­struc­tion spe­cial­ist Spieca­pag has mo­bilised its world-class pipe­line teams to North West Queens­land for early works on Je­mena’s North­ern Gas Pipe­line (NGP), where Spieca­pag has been con­tracted to con­struct the Queens­land com­po­nent of the pipe­line.

Spieca­pag’s com­po­nent of the NGP brings gas from the North­ern Ter­ri­tory to Aus­tralia’s east coast en­ergy mar­ket by link­ing the North­ern Ter­ri­tory’s Amadeus pipe­line to the Car­pen­taria pipe­line near Mt Isa in Queens­land.

Je­mena NGP project di­rec­tor Jonathan Spink said Spieca­pag Aus­tralia will con­struct around 141km of pipe­line.

“Spieca­pag Aus­tralia are sea­soned pipe­line con­struc­tors who demon­strated great skill and ca­pa­bil­ity through­out the ten­der process,” Mr Spink said.

“They are also well equipped to re­spond to the unique ter­rain the pipe­line will cross in Queens­land, and have a rep­u­ta­tion of work­ing col­lab­o­ra­tively and closely with lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.”

In de­liv­er­ing this project, Spieca­pag is lead­ing in­dus­try en­gage­ment with the lo­cal com­mu­nity, in par­tic­u­lar through its Ca­pac­ity Build­ing Pro­gram, and part­ner­ships with a num­ber of lo­cal indige­nous groups and busi­nesses.

The com­pany sees this project as an op­por­tu­nity to sup­port Indige­nous em­ploy­ment and strengthen ex­ist­ing trades by bring­ing a di­verse set of skills to the re­gion: its crews will in­clude ex­pe­ri­enced pipelin­ers work­ing along­side new en­trants into the in­dus­try, leav­ing lo­cal busi­nesses stronger by pro­mot­ing lo­cal con­tent and par­tic­i­pa­tion.

Civil works for the mo­bile camp are al­ready un­der­way us­ing lo­cal con­trac­tor Myuma Group.

Based in Bris­bane, Spieca­pag part­ners with its clients across Aus­tralia and be­yond, de­liv­er­ing projects large and small.

Spieca­pag is a ma­jor in­ter­na­tional pipe­line and fa­cil­i­ties con­trac­tor with al­most 90 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in the suc­cess­ful con­struc­tion of pipe­lines and re­lated works across 60 coun­tries on five con­ti­nents.

The com­pany op­er­ate in Aus­tralia un­der the ban­ner of Spieca­pag Aus­tralia and have suc­cess­fully com­pleted a num­ber of projects ca­ter­ing to the on­shore pipe­line, HDD and fa­cil­i­ties mar­kets of Aus­trala­sia, at projects in Vic­to­ria, NSW, WA and QLD.

Spieca­pag brings its global ex­pe­ri­ence in lay­ing more than 50,000 kilo­me­tres of pipe­lines in ex­treme en­vi­ron­ments; from the deserts of the Ara­bian Penin­sula to the Rus­sian Arc­tic, from trop­i­cal forests of Cameroon or Papua New Guinea to the deltas of Bor­neo or the peaks of the An­des in Peru and Columbia.
