Woodside Energy, via Monadelphous Group, an ASX-listed service provider to the oil and gas industry, is expected to use Titomic’s D523 low-pressure cold spray system – a handheld coating device – for one of its oil and gas projects. Woodside has engaged Monadelphous to deploy the system to combat corrosion at Woodside’s offshore gas platform in the Indian Ocean, near Karratha, Western Australia. According to Titomic, this is the first on-site application of cold spray technology in the Australian oil and gas industry of its kind.

This also marks Titomic’s first foray into the oil and gas sector, which the company considers to be a significant future market for its technology, particularly considering the remote nature of much of the oil and gas industry – making on-site repairs and limited disassembly especially compelling from a cost and time efficiency perspective.

Research conducted by the Woodside FutureLab at Monash University has identified innovative applications of Titomic’s cold spray process for effective corrosion remediation and prevention. Progression to real-world implementation marks a successful step in the research and testing of cold spray technology for corrosion resistance and repair in the oil and gas sector.

We are thrilled to see our technology being recognized and implemented by industry leaders like Woodside Energy and Monadelphous. This partnership not only validates the effectiveness of our cold spray solutions but also opens the door to further opportunities in the oil and gas sector,” said Herbert Koeck, Managing Director of Titomic. “Having two companies of this repute as our first partners in the oil and gas sector places us in a commanding position to capitalize on the opportunities this industry could bring to Titomic. We look forward to a productive collaboration that will showcase the long-term benefits of our innovative technology to the world.”

The system will be used to deposit corrosion-resistant materials like aluminum directly onto steel and other metals without heat and structure disassembly.

This order will be structured as a lease agreement, and will generate at least AUD 50,000 (approximately $33,000) in revenue for Titomic within the next 12 months. Although this is not significant in isolation, the successful implementation of cold spray in a remote oil and gas environment will generate significant positive exposure for Titomic and tangible evidence of the technology’s efficacy in such a globally significant sector.
