VIDEO: Innovative composite pipeline installation

Using machinery provided by Lean Field Developments, Beach Energy is using innovative ways to lay low-maintenance, corrosion resistant pipelines in the Cooper Basin.

Ensuring that innovation and environmental sustainability are accounted for, Beach and Lean Field have installed approximately 22 km of spoolable composite pipe, making it the largest diameter pipeline of its kind in Australasia.

The pipe was installed using novel trenchless technology, with the ground ploughed and pipe laid simultaneously with a fibre optic communications cable.

Watch the video to see how installation occurs in difficult dune-field terrain with minimal infrastructure – while ensuring a low impact to the environment.
