Downer lands Gorgon award. 400 new jobs created

Downer EDI Limited has secured a contract for various works on the Chevron-operated Gorgon Project, located on Barrow Island off the north-west coast of Western Australia.

The initial term of the contract is for 12 months, with extension options. The value of the contract is not to exceed $170 million and will depend on what work orders are placed.

Under the contract, Downer expects to create up to 400 Australian jobs predominantly located at Barrow Island. The new roles will be across multiple construction trades disciplines including structural, mechanical, piping, electrical, instrumentation and civil. There will also be a number of new project administration and functional support roles located in Downer’s Perth office.

The scope of work may include:

Structural and piping erection;
Mechanical installations;
Electrical and Instrumentation Services;
Miscellaneous Civil works;
Pre-commissioning works; and
Commissioning and start-up assistance.

The Chief Executive Officer of Downer, Grant Fenn, said he was delighted Downer would be working on one of Australia’s largest resources projects.

“Downer is a leading Australian construction contractor and we have a proven track record in oil and gas,” Fenn said.

The Gorgon Project is operated by Chevron. It is a joint venture of the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (approximately 47.3 percent), ExxonMobil (25 percent), Shell (25 percent), Osaka Gas (1.25 percent), Tokyo Gas (1 percent) and Chubu Electric Power (0.417 percent).
