The engineering and construction firm CIMIC Group reported earlier this week that it has won a contract extension to provide maintenance and turnaround services at two major Chevron-operated liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities in Australia.

CIMIC stated that its UGL company will do the work at the Gorgon and Wheatstone LNG complexes in Western Australia. At both facilities UGL will perform mechanical, electrical, instruction and access services for maintenance, plant turnaround and brownfield execution services, according to CIMIC. Moreover, the firm noted that UGL’s service provider role at Gorgon and Wheatstone services will support ongoing employment for up to 1,000 local skilled workers as well as new upskilling and apprenticeship opportunities.

The work at Gorgon and Wheatstone make up part of approximately AUD 450 million worth multi-year oil and gas maintenance contracts that UGL has won recently. CITI stated the business unit also has won integrated services contract extensions from existing clients for structural, mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation work in Western Australia and Victoria.

“These contracts exemplify the strength of UGL’s solid client relationships and its position as a market leader in the delivery of maintenance and mechanical, electrical and instrumentation services to the oil and gas industry,” commented Juan Santamaria, CEO of CIMIC Group.

The company stated the contracts are effective December 2019.

“We are proud of our close working partnerships with leaders in the oil and gas sector in Australia,” concluded UGL Managing Director Jason Spears. “These contracts reflect UGL’s reputation for strong performance and safe delivery of maintenance and shutdown services.”
