Woodside has awarded Civmec a contract for the supply and fabrication of the Pluto-Karratha gas plant (KGP) interconnector project.
Civmec will carry out the fabrication of structural steel, piping, a module and skids located within the Pluto liquified natural gas (LNG) plant to support the interconnector project.
Woodside outlined that the interconnector would transport gas from its Pluto LNG to the North West Shelf’s KGP via a 5km pipeline, which is set to be constructed along the existing Dampier to Bunbury natural gas pipeline corridor.
“The interconnector has the potential to create opportunities to take advantage of future excess capacity at KGP. It will also provide the potential to accelerate future developments of Pluto gas reserves, as well as third-party resources,” Woodside outlined in a release.
Civmec confirmed in its March quarter report that it would supply, fabricate, surface treat, assemble, test and deliver an inconnector module and stair tower module for the Woodside project.
The company’s chief executive officer Patrick Tallon said the contract would employ more personnel at a time when many industries were struggling to operate.
