Pipe Spooling and Fabrication

The manufacture of pipe spools is WPF’s bread and butter, the quality of which has earned them the excellent reputation which they enjoy in the industry today.

Intricate spools and structures in carbon and stainless (austenitic, duplex and super duplex) steel and non-ferrous metals such as Alloy 625 (Inconel) and Copper Nickel are manufactured at the WPF Workshop in Cockburn Central.

Site fitting and welding of pipe spools is carried out regularly.

Most pipe spooling work is done in accordance with ASME B31.3, ASME B31.1 and AS 4041, although all other standards and specifications can be accommodated. Pipe spooling work typically involves procurement of material and parts, fitting and welding, visual, dimensional, non-destructive testing, hydrostatic testing and coating. The utmost care is taken in the protection and packaging of the completed pipe spools prior to shipment to our clients.

Structural and Conductor Casing welding is also carried out at WPF to the appropriate API specifications and standards. Typical welds include casing to casing, casing to connector, casing to float shoes and casing to wellheads.

Induction bending of piping using prequalified procedures can also be done.

WPF boast a wide range of weld procedures qualified to various standards such as ASME IX, AWS D1.1, API, NACE MR0175 and the equivalent Australian standards. Only qualified welders or used on production welds at WPF.

Commonly used welding processes include manual metal arc (MMAW), gas tungsten arc (GTAW/TIG), metal inert gas (MIG), flux core arc (FCAW) and submerged arc (SAW).
