Momentum Engineering Keeps on Moving

Momentum Engineering provides engineering support for construction and commissioning phases on a number of major onshore gas infrastructure projects, as well as extending its services to clients looking for efficient engineering delivery for small to medium-sized brown-field and green-field oil and gas projects, both onshore and offshore.

Major projects that have recently been completed by Momentum Engineering include the Winchelsea, Wallumbilla and Moomba compressor stations. The Winchelsea Compressor Station is part of the expansion of the South West Pipeline in western Victoria managed by APA Group.

The expansion provides increased ‘winter capacity’ in Victoria and will also increases transmission of gas to other states.

Momentum Engineering successfully completed the detail design of this project in December 2013 and has been providing technical support during the construction of the facility, which is now around 60 per cent complete and on target for commission in December 2014.

The South-West Queensland Pipeline (SWQP) has also been part of recent expansions at Moomba and Wallumbilla compressor stations.

The overall SWQP expansion is being carried out by APA Group to support the Gladstone LNG project in Queensland.

Momentum Engineering successfully completed the detailed design of the expansions at both of the compressor stations earlier this year.

Momentum Engineering is continuing to provide engineering support for further modifications set to expand the Moomba compressor station.

More recently, Momentum Engineering has been able to expand its client base around Australia and provide its extensive gas infrastructure experience to other projects.

Detailed design of compressor stations in Victoria and New South Wales are well underway with a planned completion by end 2014.

Momentum Engineering has also secured significant brown-field engineering services, providing engineering and design services to newly constructed, well established and aging onshore gas processing facilities including LNG.

Momentum Engineering is an ISO 9001:2008 quality assured engineering and management company providing flexible, practical and efficient services to the energy and resource sector.
