Vertech Group completed a highly successful project proving our pipeline inspection package. The scope focused on inspecting interconnecting flowlines that ranged from 3” through to 8” in Diameter and ran from Ballera in Southwest Queensland (QLD) through to Moomba in South Australia (SA).
Cooper Basin Pipelines
The Importance of Pipeline Radiography
Pipeline radiography is highly effective in inspecting new pipelines during their construction to ensure they are free of defects before being put into service. This can help prevent costly and potentially dangerous failures in the future. During construction, the pipeline can was inspected using radiography to detect any flaws, such as welding defects or material inclusions, before the pipeline is buried or put into operation. Regular inspection and testing of new and in-service pipelines are essential to ensure the safe and reliable transportation of liquids or gases over long distances.
The Cooper Basin has significant onshore petroleum and natural gas deposits, with pipelines transporting gas to the major markets of Brisbane, Adelaide, and Sydney. The basin covers approximately 127,000 sqm and extends across the northeast of South Australia and southwest of Queensland.
The oil and gas window is located 1,250 m below the surface and was initially discovered in the 1960s (although there are more significant oil and gas deposits offshore). The first commercial discovery of gas occurred in 1963.
