Lucas

Gorgon HDD Shore Crossing

Project Type: Horizontal Directional Drilling


Client: Chevron Australia Pty Ltd


Value: AU$100 Million


Status: In progress


Lucas provided directional drilling of nine 450 metre long HDD holes, including the stringing, welding and NDT testing of the pipelines. Off shore diving vessels were used to guide 400m of pipeline beyond the exit of each HDD hole to the target lay down area.

Works included establishing a site on Barrow Island, a Class A nature reserve which requires strict environmental management practices for both operations and mobilisation of personnel and equipment to site.

 


 

Bonaparte Gas Pipeline

Project Type: Gas Pipeline


Client: APA Group


Value: AU$100 Million


Status: Completed


Lucas constructed the Bonaparte Gas Pipeline through some of Australia's most remote and challenging country, completing the works ahead of schedule. The Pipeline carries natural gas 287km from ENI Australia's Blacktip Plant to join the Amadeus Basin to Darwin pipeline (the NT's main gas supply) at Ban Ban Springs Station.

Lucas collaborated closely with APA to ensure the project was executed safely and efficiently. Our work on this project won the APIA Safety Award.

Our HDD and micro tunneling expertise were used to install underground pipelines through the built-up areas of Brisbane. Lucas was responsible for the design, pipe selection and construction of HDD crossings under the Brisbane River at Luggage Point and the Aquarium Passage.

Working with alliance partners, Lucas successfully delivered a total of 90km of pipeline, pumping stations and water balance tanks, significantly improving South East Queensland’s water infrastructure.

 


SEA Gas Pipeline

Project Type: Turnkey Gas Pipeline


Client: SEA Gas Partnership


Value: AU$340 Million


Status: Completed


In partnership with Spie Capag, Lucas provided a turnkey service including  detailed engineering and design as well as the construction and commissioning of the 686km pipeline.

Brooklyn to Lara Pipeline

Project Type: Gas Pipeline


Client: Australian Pipeline Trust (APA)


Value: AU$50 Million


Status: Completed


Lucas constructed a 57 kilometre gas pipeline, between the Brooklyn Compressor Station, west of Melbourne, and Lara, on the outskirts of Geelong. The pipeline adds storage capacity to accommodate the increased gas flows expected from the South West Victorian gas fields.

In addition to a number of complex water, road and rail crossings requiring effective landowner management, Lucas successfully met stringent environmental requirements to protect the habitat of an endangered frog species.
