Woodside has awarded engineering group BAM Clough the marine installation services contract for its Karratha gas plant life extension project.

A statement published on BAM Clough’s website this morning confirmed the contract.

The contract will see BAM Clough manage and install the engineering works associated with replacing existing equipment at two berths at the Karratha Gas Plant, including both LNG and LPG loading arms, gangways and dolphin fenders.

CEO of Clough Kevin Gallagher welcomed the announcement, citing the fact that his company originally built the two jetties.

“Woodside and BAM Clough have a long history of successful collaboration. During the 1980s BAM Clough built Australia’s first LNG load-out jetty for the North West Shelf, and more recently completed the Train V LNG Jetty expansion and the Pluto LNG Jetty,” he said.

BAM Clough is a 50/50 joint venture between Clough Limited and BAM International.

The Karratha Gas Plant extension project started in 2013 and is expected to be completed in 2019. Currently the plant produces 12,000 tonnes of domestic gas per day and consists of five LNG processing trains capable of producing 16.3 million tonnes per annum, two domestic gas trains, six condensate stabilisation units, three LPG fractionation units as well as storage and loading facilities for LNG, LPG and condensate.
