GUJV Completes EPM Services on Australia's Gorgon Project

Wood Group announced that the company and Technip have recently completed 11 years of engineering and project management services on the Chevron Australia-operated Gorgon Project, the largest single-resource development offshore Australia.

The two companies formed the Gorgon Upstream Joint Venture (GUJV) in 2005 to deliver front end engineering and design (FEED) services, and transitioned with the project to provide detailed engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for Gorgon’s Upstream Facilities.

“We are proud to have been part of one of the world’s largest natural gas projects from its early stages more than 10 years ago. This was a challenging deepwater project and we delivered a fully integrated offering with Technip. The strategic partnership united our technical strengths to undertake engineering feats such as designing and installing one of the world’s largest subsea tiebacks," Bob Macdonald, CEO of Specialist Technical Solutions, Wood Group, said in Tuesday's press release.

Arnaud Pieton, president of Technip in Asia Pacific, commented that GUJV “are delighted to have been involved with the Chevron Australia-operated Gorgon Project over the last 11 years. The integrated project management model was highly effective and worked exceptionally well due to our strong relationship and combined technical strengths with our joint venture partner Wood Group.”
