Vinidex to provide 3200km of pipe to Australia Pacific LNG project

IN a win for local manufacturing, Australia Pacific LNG has awarded Vinidex a contract to supply the high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic pipes for its CSG to LNG project.

Vinidex is a Brisbane-based pipe manufacturer. It will supply more than 3200km of HDPE interconnecting pipe to transport gas and water extracted from CSG production wells located in the Surat and Bowen basins.

According to Australia Pacific LNG the HDPE pipe is a key component of the Project which will transport gas and water from its source to treatment plants and the main pipeline.

Australian Pacific LNG said it had worked to ensure local businesses have every opportunity to participate where possible. Vinidex is now one of a growing number of home grown companies contributing to the delivery of the project.

Vinidex is expected to increase its workforce by up to 50 people to meet peak construction demands and also intends to build a new manufacturing facility on 80,000m2 of land in Toowoomba to service this contract and the growing coal seam gas and mining industries.

High-density polyethylene plastic pipe is used extensively in Australia and across the globe in large scale infrastructure projects particularly in the water, irrigation, mining, and oil and gas industries because of its high durability and corrosion resistance.
