High Pressure Fuel Gas Pipeline in Papua New Guinea
AJ Lucas Services recently commissioned the fuel gas pipeline for the Dirio Power Station just outside Por Moresby in Papua New Guinea.
We successfully interfaced between ExxonMobil and the Dirio power station.
The project was delivered successfully despite the COVID pandemic.
Foremost Explorer III
Has been previously deployed for Santos, AGL
Fast moving - rigs up and down, and handles drill pipe quickly saving drilling costs
Can drill holes to 1,500 metres horizontal step out
Ideal for drilling surface-in-seam (SIS), high-angle-sump-horizontals (HASH), and multi-laterals wells
130,000 lbs capacity with 200,000 lbs upgrade option
With innovating thinking and determination, our principals have played leading roles in:
Successful investment into coal seam gas developments in Queensland and NSW
Investment into the developing Bowland shale gas project in the UK
Establishment of a major coal drilling business and initiation of its surface to in seam coal methane drainage technology
introduction of horizontal directional drilling into Australia with projects in NSW, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, mainland China
Innovations in drilling HDD to grade for sewers in Sydney region
Innovations in high pressure gas pipelines and gathering system construction in Surat Basin of Queensland with Zap-lok
Innovation and Technology
We have a long history of innovation and working in partnership with many of our customers through:
Innovation: we seek out and initiate innovations. Continuing innovation makes projects cheaper and better. We have a long history of successful innovations with beneficial impacts on our sectors
Value engineering used to demonstrate the value of the innovations and alternatives before decisions are locked in place as shown on the accompanying graphic – for gas projects, cost in $/GJ is the important metric, not rig hire rates.
Energy Efficiency and Renewables: together with our partner Smart Energy Services (www.smartesco.com), we provide energy efficiency, renewables and sustainable services to commercial and industrial customers.
Financial Engineering: we have experience in using financing and innovative financial products such as power purchase agreements (PPAs) to assist our customers overcome the hurdles of capital expenditure.
