Project:

Crude Oil Pipeline Rehabilitation

Location:

Longford to Long Island Point

About this Project:

Esso Australia Pty Ltd transports crude oil along a predominately underground 180km pipeline from Longford to Long Island Point (Victoria). This pipeline has been in operation since the late 1960’s and is currently undergoing refurbishment. AsClear was chosen to remove the existing coal tar and coat the pipe with epoxy resin. This resin is heated and sprayed whilst the pipe is in the ground thereby ensuring the integrity of the pipe for years to come.
