Armflame – working hard across the gas industry

The company’s strengths lie in gas gathering network design and supply, well head connection design and supply, metering, valving, civil construction, manpower and equipment, dams, river crossings, under road crossings, commissioning, compressor stations and power stations, among many other things.

As Armflame established itself in the gas market locally, Boral Gas (now Origin Energy) contracted the company’s services to manage and oversee the conversion of Rockhampton City from LPG to natural gas. This population of 70,000 took three years to change over.

Armflame moved into under road drilling as part of its commitment to reticulation works, and the company also expanded its services to include larger water pipe installations for councils and utilities. Poly pipe welding was the next obvious field to develop in and now Armflame is a premier firm in this area.

Contracts in the Fairview field established Armflame as a capable entity for turnkey gas gathering works. The construction of a 3 x universal compressor station was seen to show the genuine expansion ability of the firm.

As time moves forward Armflame is working in many fields simultaneously including construction of Coal Prep Handling Plant Piping, water pipelines, and offshore contracts in the Pacific Rim.

Recently Armflame entered into the manufacturing arena with acquisitions of Fittings Manufacturing Machines and fabrication facilities being set up.

Armflame has aided the likes of Anglo Coal, CH4, Arrow Energy and Envirogen in designing several gas gathering networks in Moura and Moranbah, in Queensland. Armflame is responsible for the full construction, testing and commissioning of these networks.

The company is currently working on the next stage of the Moranbah network, which includes steel manifolds, metering systems, gas analysers and isolation points.
