Clough Limited and joint venture partner, AMEC plc have signed an Engineering Services Contract (ESC) with Woodside Energy Ltd, of Australia.

In July 2005, Clough AMEC was provisionally selected by Woodside and has now completed the final stage of the selection process by formalising the agreement. Under the agreement, Clough AMEC will perform a three year contract with an option for Woodside to extend the project for a further five years.
