Pipe laying achievement recorded on the Woleebe Creek Pipeline
Murphy Pipe and Civil’s 380-person crew working on the Woleebee Creek to Glebe Weir Pipeline Project, located in Wandoan, Queensland, has successfully laid 4.6 km of steel pipeline in a single day. According to Project Manager Barry Heverin, the crews set a cracking pace throughout the 12-hour day and managed to lay a total of 358 pipes, which is an average of one pipe every two minutes. “Each steel pipe is 13.5 m long, weighs 4 tonne and has a diameter of just over one metre, so putting in this number of pipes in a day takes some effort,” Mr Heverin said.
