Clough Wins LNG Jetty Construction Gig

Clough Limited has been awarded a contract to construct the LNG jetty berth for Woodside's Pluto LNG Project. The contract value will be approximately AUD$200 million.

The 300 metre long approach jetty will be undertaken in an equal joint venture with Interbeton bv of Holland (Harbourworks Clough Joint Venture), which was awarded the preliminary works for the approach jetty. The Joint Venture recently completed a jetty construction contract for the North West Shelf Venture Phase 5 expansion project on the Burrup Peninsula.

Clough Chief Executive Officer, John Smith said "The Harbourworks Clough Joint Venture has constructed many complex marine structures in its 40 years existence and we will work diligently with our customer, Woodside to build upon the success of the Train 5 LNG jetty extension to deliver this important Australian project."

The LNG jetty berth will include a 38 meter x 50 meter platform, four breasting dolphins, six mooring dolphins and navigational aids. Construction will utilize the recently upgraded jack up barge 1B909 with enhanced lifting capacity.

The project commenced with the preliminary works in November 2007, the construction team has already mobilised to site with completion scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2009.
