The joint venture will be responsible for providing support in Northern Territory waters including trenching, pipe pull operations and rock placement works. The companies will carry out trenching, pipe pull operations and prepare the shore crossing at the landfall location near the Darwin LNG plant. Additionally, rock placement works will be performed to protect the pipeline.

A cutter suction dredger, trailing suction hopper dredger and backhoe dredger will be deployed for this project, as well as a fallpipe vessel for the rock placement works and a linear pulling winch for the pipe pull. Project preparations will commence immediately.
