Ichthys, a large-scale offshore project
Our expertise allows us to support our customers in even their most complex projects. Air Liquide Welding Italy recently contributed to the Ichthys project.
The Ichthys LNG project involves the construction of a pipeline at a depth of 275 meters beneath the Australian Timor Sea. The project designer is SAIPEM, a globally recognized specialist in the delivery of large-scale offshore and onshore projects. As part of constructing this 889-km pipeline, Air Liquide Welding Italy was awarded an order to supply nearly 1,000 metric tons of flux and submerged arc wires in December 2013. Securing this order marked the culmination of lengthy preparatory work, including the supply of samples, welding procedure approvals, selection of secure packaging solutions (DryBag for the flux and waterproof wooden cases for the wire), and full compliance with the demanding DNV-OS-F101 (2010) submarine pipeline standard. The Ichthys project brings together the full range of our expertise in the offshore pipe-laying sector.
