Wood has extended its framework agreement with Chevron Australia to provide master contractor services to the Gorgon Stage Two development.

Effective immediately, the two-year contract extends an agreement in place since 2015 and will continue to be delivered by Wood in Perth.

The scope of the agreement covers engineering, design, construction management, procurement, logistics, quality assurance, health, environment and safety management services for Chevron-operated onshore and offshore assets.

Wood’s multi-disciplinary team in Perth will continue to provide engineering design and logistics support to Gorgon Stage Two.

In April, Chevron announced it would be proceeding with Gorgon Stage Two Project, with drilling anticipated to commence next year.

The additional Gorgon subsea facilities will maintain the supply of gas for the life of the project, over the next 30 to 40 years.

The further development of one of Australia’s largest resources project is expected to create hundreds of new jobs over the duration GS2, including in areas such as drilling, subsea installation, pipelaying and project management as well as ongoing operations.

Chevron has developed the Gorgon and Jansz-Io gas fields, located within the Greater Gorgon area, between 130 and 220 km off the northwest coast of Western Australia.

The project is a joint venture of the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (approximately 47 per cent), ExxonMobil (25 per cent), Shell (25 per cent), Osaka Gas (1.25 per cent), Tokyo Gas (1 per cent) and Chubu Electric Power (0.417 per cent).
