Halfwave Wins Ichthys Pipeline Inspection Work

Halfwave has been awarded a long-term contract by Inpex Australia for base line subsea launch in-line inspection.

The scope of work includes a custom built 42” Acoustic Resonance Technology (ART) Scan by Halfwave to inspect the subsea pipeline that requires a low flow subsea launch with high speed inspection of the Ichthys 890-kilometer natural gas transmission pipeline.

The Ichthys LNG project is located in the Ichthys field within the northern Browse Basin about 220 km north-west of Western Australia’s Kimberley coast, at the western edge of the Timor Sea. During operations, the Ichthys LNG project is expected to produce up to 8.9 million tonnes of LNG and up to 1.6 million tonnes of LPG per annum and 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak, requiring an 890 km pipeline to facilitate export.

Halfwave CEO, Paul Cooper, said: “Halfwave is very pleased with the award by INPEX and to be a part of the ground breaking Ichthys LNG project. Halfwave ART capabilities are demonstrating that they are adding value by de-risking challenging inspections and providing market leading inspection performance. Halfwave will continue to work towards expanding our presence in the Australia and global markets.”
