Australia’s Woodside as operator of the North West Shelf (NWS) Project, has awarded the BAM Clough Joint Venture the Marine Installation Services contract for the Karratha Gas Plant Life Extension Integrated Marine Campaign project.
BAM Clough is a 50/50 joint venture between Clough Limited and BAM International. Karratha Gas Plant, is one of NWS facilities, where LNG, domestic gas, condensate and LPG are produced.
According to Clough, the contract involves project management and installation engineering works associated with replacing existing equipment on two berths, including LNG and LPG marine loading arms, gangways and dolphin fenders, with an option to provide marine equipment and resources to undertake the site works.
Clough CEO and Managing Director Kevin Gallagher said: “Woodside and BAM Clough have a long history of successful collaboration. During the 1980s BAM Clough built Australia’s first LNG load-out jetty for the North West Shelf, and more recently completed the Train V LNG Jetty expansion and the Pluto LNG Jetty. We are delighted to see this relationship continue through the provision of brownfields services to the jetties we originally constructed”.
The NWS Project is a joint venture between six major international companies. It is one of the world’s largest LNG producers, supplying oil and gas to Australian and international markets from huge offshore gas and condensate fields in the Carnarvon Basin off the north-west coast of Australia.
