Halfwave has been awarded two new pipeline inspections by Woodside in Australia as a part of a Master Services Agreement (MSA).
Woodside is an early adopter of Halfwave’s ultra-wideband acoustic resonance technology (ART), which provides measurement capabilities beyond those of existing inspection technologies.
The ART Scan is suited for the inspection of gas and liquid pipelines and is a non-contact, low friction, lightweight technology and only the polyurethane is in contact with the pipe wall.
The two new ILI operations are planned to be carried out in 2019 on the 20” x 54km Pluto fowline and the 40” x 134km 1TL trunkline.
Halfwave CEO, Paul Cooper, said: “We are delighted with this latest award from Woodside, who are a driver of new technology. The award is further confirmation of ART’s value proposition to the inspection market.
“We will strive to continue the good work to ensure Woodside’s needs are met on this and future projects.”
