change text size

Scaffolding specialist MAS Australasia Pty Ltd. (MAS) a subsidiary of AusGroup Limited, a leading provider of fabrication, manufacturing, construction and integrated services to the oil and gas and resources sectors, has secured an initial $32.9 million (AUD 34.5 million) contract with CB&I and Kentz Joint Venture (CKJV) on the Chevron-operated Gorgon Project.

The contract has been awarded for ongoing scaffolding services. Strong performance and delivery may position AusGroup to secure further work over the life of the construction project.

MAS has been commissioned to erect multi-purpose scaffolding which will be used to provide access for insulation, painting, installation and other works undertaken on Barrow Island.

Expected to initially create at least 80 local jobs, the scope also includes the provision of key MAS management personnel and the use of a specialized in-house Scaffold Management System. MAS will also assist with the planning, design, engineering and coordination of scaffolding on the Project.

Laurie Barlow, CEO and managing director said: “This contract win reinforces MAS as a leading industrial scaffolder in Australia and the LNG sector, providing highly skilled personnel with the expertise to meet project challenges and deliver project outcomes to the highest standard.

We hope that our strong performance with this scope of work will further strengthen our relationship with CKJV as we continue providing a range of services on the Chevron-operated Gorgon Project.”

The Gorgon Project is one of the world’s largest natural gas projects and the largest single resource development in Australia’s history. It is operated by an Australian subsidiary of Chevron and is a joint venture of the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (47.3 percent), ExxonMobil (25 percent), Shell (25 percent), Osaka Gas (1.25 percent), Tokyo Gas (1 percent) and Chubu Electric Power (0.417 percent).
