In an agreement with an unnamed customer, which is one of Europe's biggest oilfield service companies by market capitalization, AusGroup will undertake work for the procurement, fabrication and loadout of an unmanned wellhead platform. The work on the gas platform includes the jacket, the topside modules and the piles. This subsea platform will be connected to an onshore gas plant. The gas extracted will be transported via an 18" subsea pipeline 108 km long.
This work is part of a project initiated by the Australian government to develop the gas fields in the waters near Western Australia and Northern Territory borders. The wellhead platform will be located in 52 meters of water approximately 245 km southwest of Darwin.
Commented Mr Stuart Kenny, Managing Director of AusGroup, "Against the strong competition, we have been working tirelessly for the past 6 months to bid and secure the project. We are delighted to participate in this project. This contract win is an affirmation of our capabilities as well as our relationships with the major oil & gas players."
