The team at LFF worked closely with Beach from a technical and commercial perspective through late 2021 to award and contract execution in early 2022. The supply contract includes the manufacture of 11,000 m DN200 API5LX65 PSL2 HFW line pipe, with DFBE external coating, and 11,000 m DN50 API5LX60 PSL2 HFW line pipe with 3LPE external coating.
Beach Energy proposes to construct and operate the production pipeline to convey natural gas from the Enterprise-1 well site at Port Campbell to the Otway Gas Plant for the supply of natural gas to the Australian East Coast domestic market.
Alongside the gas pipeline, a 11 km DN50 mono-ethylene glycol (MEG) pipeline will be used to circulate MEG to prevent corrosion of the gas pipeline.
The team at LFF have expressed it looks forward to this opportunity to work alongside Beach Energy to manage the complex technical and logistical requirements for steel and line-pipe manufacture to this project.
