Western Australia family-owned and operated Petroleum and Mining Engineering Pty Ltd (Est. 1991) has firmly established themselves as an offshore pipeline fabricator, securing another large ‘Reel-Lay’ project utilising its innovative ‘Mobile Spoolbase’ expertise to fabricate the 64km offshore Sole Development Pipeline. PAME returns to the Crib Point Terminal Victoria following the successful 24km Santos Casino Henry VicP44 extension completed in 2009.
“We are very proud to be associated with the future of Australia’s oil and gas industry,” commented a spokesperson from PAME. “We bring a uniquely Australian perspective putting an emphasis on safety, quality and home-grown ingenuity, and with help from the local community we will prove that to be globally competitive you need to engage locally”. PAME Mobile Spoolbase highlights include, PAME’s ‘total weld management’, Inspec/Stanley PipeWIZARD® AUT and Shawcor’s Canusa CPS IntelliCOAT ® Field Joint Coating (FJC), all of which will ensure that the Sole Development Pipeline is completed to the highest of international standards.
Oilfield Service provider Halliburton recently required PAME to fabricate a custom offshore frame to mount two Krohne Optimass mass flow meters. Completed with anti-vibration mountings, custom spools and painted to Halliburton's specifications.
PAME has just completed a number of diesel filter pipe spools for tank engineering specialist MITE. A qualified welder was also supplied to complete the various field fit welds to carbon steel tie-in spools on-site.
