Craftsmanship, quality and professionalism were recognised by Weld Australia at their 2022 Welding Excellence Awards, where Ventia won the Project of the Year Award for Greenfield Construction Project.

The project for a large CSG company in the Surat Basin required Ventia to engage and manage multiple contractors for all aspects of the construction including earthworks, piling, civil, electrical and instrumentation. 

To increase efficiency in the field, the team identified early on how best to split the welding between workshop welds and site-based welds. Ventia performed all pipe installation, field welding and bolt ups.
