Civmec, Wood sign contracts

Over the past week, a number of contractors have been awarded work in Australia and internationally.

The following contracts have been awarded, including the following:

Civmec: contract with Woodside

Civmec has been awarded multiple projects with a combined contract value totalling $175 million, including a contract with Woodside.

The company has secured a term contract for five years, plus two one-year extension option, with Woodside.

As part of the agreement, Civmec will supply services supporting Woodside’s exiting onshore and offshore production facilities and capital projects in Australia.

Chief executive officer Patrick Tallon said the company privileged to have secured a long-term contract with Woodside, having delivered several projects to them in the past.

“This contract will provide us with a base load of work and allow us to work with Woodside as a partner to optimise efficiencies and savings in the delivery of our services to them over the longer term,” Tallon said.

Earlier this year, Woodside awarded Civmec the contract for the supply fabrication of the Pluto-Karratha gas plant (KGP) interconnector project.

Civmec is set to 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.

Wood: contract with Equinor

Wood has entered into a three-year agreement to deliver operations, maintenance, modifications, and offshore services on the Mariner A platform and Mariner B floating storage unit for Equinor in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS).

The agreement will run from January 2021 through to the fourth quarter of 2023, with options to extend.

President of Wood’s operations services business in Europe and Africa, Craig Shanaghey, said the company was delighted to enacted its partnership with Equinor.

“Wood has a long-standing track record of partnering with our clients to deliver safe, reliable, and optimised operations in the UKCS, and we look forward to extending that to include Mariner by leveraging our deep operational knowledge, experience, and digital capability,” Shanaghey said.

“Mariner is still in its early years of production and, with Wood’s ambition to realise a digitally-enabled future, we see excellent potential to explore new opportunities that will promote a lifetime of sustainable and responsible operations at the field.”

The Mariner project is described as one of the most innovative offshore developments, supported by new digital solutions and the latest technologies, including automated drilling and digital twin solutions.
