AMEC & Clough Win Bayu-Undan Work

AMEC has teamed up with Clough to win a multi-million dollar contract from ConocoPhillips to provide operations and maintenance services for the Bayu-Undan development, South East Asia.

The contract reinforces AMEC’s position as a leading services provider to the oil and gas industry in the region.

Over the next three years, with an option to extend a further two years, the AMEC Clough joint venture will service the production facilities at the Bayu-Undan gas and condensate field, located in the Timor Sea. The field is estimated to hold over 400 million barrels of hydrocarbon liquids and 3.4 trillion cubic feet of gas.

The facilities comprise a 14,000 ton drilling, production and processing platform, a 11,500 ton compression, utilities and quarters platform, a 1,400 ton wellhead platform and a floating storage and offloading vessel.

“We are delighted to have been selected by ConocoPhillips to provide long-term services in the important Asia-Pacific oil and gas producing region,” said Neil Bruce, Managing Director of AMEC’s Oil and Gas division. “The contract demonstrates the global reach of our integrated skills and our continuing focus on delivering value for our strategic clients.”

David Singleton, Managing Director and CEO of Clough Limited, added: “I am delighted that the Clough AMEC JV and ConocoPhillips have now signed-off on the above contract. This is a significant breakthrough for Clough in terms of building its Oil & Gas operations and maintenance. In conjunction with AMEC, the team effort to secure this contract and the execution of the mobilization phase has been excellent. A multi-national workforce is being engaged from within South East Asia with management support from Perth, Darwin and Dili, Timor-Leste”.

The contract is the latest in a series of oil and gas service-based contracts for both Clough and AMEC in the Asia-Pacific region.

AMEC and alliance partner Fluor announced recently the award of an engineering and procurement contract for the Enfield floating production offloading and storage facility for Woodside Energy Limited, Australia.

Clough through the joint venture (JV) of its fully owned Oil and Gas Division and majority owned Indonesian company, PT Petrosea, recently announced the award of the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract by operator BP West Java for the APN Field Development located in the West Java Sea, in Indonesia.

The Bayu-Undan field is located in the Joint Petroleum Development Area (JPDA) and is administered by the Timor Sea Designated Authority (TSDA) comprising representatives appointed by both the Australian and Republica Democratica de Timor-Leste governments.
