New pipe spool fabrication contract for BAE Systems Henderson

The new project will see the company working with EMAS AMC. The pipe spool contract will support the Woodside–operated Julimar Development Project off the far north-west Australian coast. The awarded scope of work includes the pre and post metrology fabrication for five-off horizontal tie-in spools and five-off vertical well jumper spools, which will feature engineering, material receipt, manufacturing, inspection, testing, load out, and sea fastening services from BAE Systems Heavy Load-out Wharf in Henderson. BAE Systems is currently working on several other projects at its Henderson facility. One project involves the fabrication of three large scale adjustable pipe supports, destined for use on the seabed of the Japanese energy giant Ichthys liquefied natural gas project, located in the Browse Basin off the northern WA coast. Another will see the fabrication of subsea pipe spools for the Quadrant Energy John Brookes Gas Field located in the Carnarvon Basin off the north-west WA coast. Henderson General Manager Ian McMillan said: “Historically the company’s Henderson facility has focused on major defence projects. More recently, we have targeted commercial maritime and the resources sector.” Mr McMillan explained that the company’s investment in infrastructure, people, processes and systems has readied the facility to execute subsea pre and post metrology pipe spools, structures and sea fastening solutions. “The recent installation of a new heavy lift wharf and extended wet and dry berth operations has further extended our capabilities, providing customers with guaranteed unrestricted load out options and enhancing our position in the maintenance and support domain,” said Mr McMillan.
