Balltec to Deliver Pipeline Recovery Tool to Wheatstone LNG Project

Balltec, the pipeline solutions specialist, has been contracted by Allseas to supply a 44” PipeLOK™ pipeline recovery tool to the Wheatstone project based 200km offshore Onslow, Western Australia.

The 44” PipeLOK tool is the world’s largest ball and taper based dewatering pipeline recovery tool in service. The PipeLOK™ tool itself has been specifically designed for the Wheatstone project and includes some advanced features that have not previously featured in the Balltec stock.

The tool combines the PipeLOK™ dewatering system with an air let-outlet system and a hot stab interface. The tool is on hire for the pipe laying phase of the Wheatstone project due to commence later in 2014.

The Wheatstone Project will include an onshore facility located at Ashburton North Strategic Industrial Area, 12 kilometres west of Onslow in Western Australia’s Pilbara region. The foundation project includes two LNG trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) and a domestic gas plant.
