Woodside Awards Three-year Contract to Lloyd's Register

Lloyd's Register Asia has been awarded a three-year contract by Woodside Energy Ltd for the provision of validation and classification services in Australia.

The contract, which took effect on May 3, includes two one-year option periods and is hoped to bring work for the Lloyd's Register Group on the next generation of Woodside-operated facilities, including the forthcoming NR2 and Pluto projects, among others.

"This important contract demonstrates the value of a client-relationship management process and operational excellence during execution of our ongoing projects with Woodside," said Alastair Jones, Oil and Gas Business Manager for Lloyd's Register Asia. "It also demonstrates our commitment to the oil and gas industry in Western Australia and allows us to expand our operations center there."

The Lloyd's Register Group has enjoyed a long and close relationship with Woodside that started more than 20 years ago with services provided to the company's North Rankin A platform.

This contract underlines the Lloyd's Register Group's position as one of Woodside's preferred providers of classification and validation services.

The Lloyd's Register Group currently provides these services across Woodside's comprehensive Australian asset base, including work on the floating production, storage and offloading vessels Northern Endeavour and Nganhurra, gas assets (North Rankin A and Goodwyn A) and the Otway, Angel and Vincent projects.

The Lloyd's Register Group works to help improve its clients' safety, quality, environmental and business performance throughout the world, because life matters.
