Cape plc,  a British-based essential industrial services, announced Friday that its wholly owned subsidiary Cape Australia Onshore has entered into an agreement with Bechtel Corporation, one of the world’s most respected engineering, project management, and construction companies, for the supply of Scaffold Erection and Dismantling Services on the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project in Western Australia.

The contract, valued at over $75 million (AUD 80 million) expects to create 135 new Australian jobs, all located onsite at Ashburton North, 7.4 miles (12 kilometers) west of Onslow in Western Australia.
