Spiecapag mobilised for major pipeline work
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.
