Dunstans successful gas line installation in the Cooper Basin

21 May 2018

Dunstans have successfully completed the installation of a 42km Fiberspar high pressure gas line in the Cooper Basin, connecting approximately 10 gas wells into the Moomba processing facility for Senex and Santos.

Seven facilities were also constructed which serve as tie in points to existing lines and wells, and to allow the “pigging” (cleaning) of the lines to take place.

This gas is to be used to supply the Australian domestic market.

Dunstans has been delivering high quality work to our oil and gas customers over the past 10 years and our reputation in this market has earned us valuable relationships with some of the industry’s leading producers.
