Woodside awards Halfwave ILI contracts

Woodside has awarded Halfwave two inline inspection (ILI) contracts that will make use of the company’s unique inspection technology.

Woodside, an Australian oil and gas giant, has been an early adopter of Halfwave’s ultra-wideband acoustic resonance technology (ART).

“We are delighted with this latest award from Woodside, who are a driver of new technology,” said Halfwave CEO Paul Cooper.

“The award is further confirmation of ART’s value proposition to the inspection market.

“We will strive to continue the good work to ensure Woodside’s needs are met on this and future projects.”

ART overcomes limitations typically associated with traditional ultrasonic testing, while providing measurement capabilities beyond some existing inspection technologies.

The acoustic signals are able to transmit through gas, so there is no need for a liquid coupling medium; can penetrate internal coatings and surface deposits more effectively than traditional inspection methods; and negotiate constricted pipelines with internal diameter changes that other ILI pigs may not.
