Civmec Bags Subcontracts for Gorgon, Persephone Projects Off Australia

Civmec Limited, an Henderson-headquarted integrated construction and engineering services provider in Western Australia, reported Tuesday that the company has clinched contracts for the Gorgon and Persephone projects offshore Australia.

The company secured several contracts -- which apart from the two oil and gas projects included those for the mining sector -- worth approximately $53 million (AUD 68 million) recently.

The first contract from GE Oil & Gas requires Civmec to undertake the fabrication and testing of the Chevron-operated Gorgon project’s new 34 inch Subsea Pig Launcher/Receiver (SSPLR) in two stages. Stage 1 works, targeted for completion in November, will commence immediately and will involve the fabrication of a 34 inch barrel for a Subsea Pig Receiver from supplied materials, with the complete structure weighing 104 tons. Meanwhile, fabrication of a 6 inch kicker header, testing of the SSPLR and retro fitting will be carried out at a later date as part of Stage 2 works.

As for the second contract from FMC Technologies, Civmec will commence work immediately for the fabrication, surface treatment and testing of a production manifold. The manifold is designed for installation at the Woodside-operated Persephone Project, located on Australia’s North West Shelf and is scheduled for completion by March 2016.

“We are delighted to announce these new awards with existing clients and feel this highlights a satisfaction in the market for our service offering and demonstrates the breadth and depth of our capabilities, along with our commitment to providing our clients with the highest levels of service,” Patrick Tallon, CEO of Civmec, said in the press release.
