Leighton Contractors has been awarded a contract by Chevron Australia to deliver the civil and underground package for the Gorgon Project valued at more than $800 million.
This contract win is in addition to the company’s work in hand at the Gorgon Project where the company is completing works on the 2.1 kilometre LNG jetty and marine structures in consortium with Saipem.
The project team has commenced work and are expected to be complete by the end of 2013.
The scope of this contract consists of both on island and off island activities.
Off island works includes material management, precast concrete fabrication, cable re-drumming and pipe spooling.
On island activities include civil, concrete and underground drainage, piping, electrical installation and telecommunications services around the LNG Plant site.
In delivering the scope above, Leighton Contractors encourages innovative strategies to minimise the amount of works and labour required on Barrow Island in favour of off island work where possible to minimise impact on the island.
