GF Engineering secures Waitsia contract

Waitsia Gas Project

GF Engineering has been awarded the contract for the fabrication of process piping for the Waitsia gas project Stage 2 in Western Australia.

The contract was awarded on behalf of Clough, with the workshop fabrication proposed to begin in the last quarter of 2021.

“We are extremely proud to work with Clough again and hope to build on the solid relationship formed when delivering the successful Wheatstone HUC project and help deliver another quality project together,” GF said.

The Waitsia gas field is ranked one of the largest gas fields ever discovered onshore in Australia and is a joint venture between Mitsui E&P and Beach Energy.

Waitsia Stage 2 will involve further development of the gas field, with more wells and a new production facility capable of producing 250 TJ/day.

At the end of June Beach Energy and Mitsui E&P Australia signed a five-year gas supply agreement (GSA) with Mid-West LNG, a group company of Clean Energy Fuels Australia (CEFA).

Under the GSA, which is expected to commence during the second quarter of 2022, the Waitsia joint venture will supply a base volume of 2 terajoules a day (TJ/d) of gas from the Xyris production facility.

In January the JV made a final investment decision (FID) on stage two of the Waitsia gas project in the onshore Perth Basin, Western Australia.

The 50:50 partners announced the milestone in late December after signing key commercial agreements with the North West Shelf joint venture, the Western Australian Government and the Australian Gas Infrastructure Group.
