At the time of construction in 2005, the Hegigio Bridge, completed by Clough for Oil Search, was the highest bridge in the world.
The Hegigio Pipe Bridge project in the Southern Highlands Province, Papua New Guinea (PNG), required the supply, fabrication, assembly and erection of a 470m long cable-stayed suspension bridge spanning across the 500m deep Hegigio Gorge. The bridge was required to carry hydrocarbon transportation pipes, linking pipes from the south-east Mananda oil fields to the existing Agogo and Kutubu processing facilities.
The main cable was connected to a 33m-high A-frame tower at the southern abutment and a 4m-high tower at the northern abutment. The southern abutment was constructed within an existing live well pad area with access to the northern abutment via helicopter, due to the extreme terrain conditions.
In February 2018, a magnitude 7.5 earthquake hit the PNG Highlands including the Hegigio Gorge, causing significant damage to the pipe bridge.
Currently, Hegigio is the world's highest pipeline bridge, and sixth highest bridge. ... See MoreSee Less
