Kentz Secures Pluto LNG Contract

Kentz, through its Australian joint venture operating company Thiess Kentz Pty Ltd, was awarded the Site Wide Specialist Instrumentation Contract for the Pluto LNG Project following a competitive bid process. This brings the combined value of work secured to date on the project to in excess of AUD $120 million.

The Pluto LNG Project is being developed by Woodside. Woodside has appointed Foster Wheeler Pty Ltd and WorleyParsons Services Pty Ltd, known as FWW, as its Engineering Procurement and Construction manager (EPCM).

The project is located on the Burrup Peninsula in Western Australia and will be developed across two sites -- the storage and export site and the LNG processing site. The storage and loading site consists of LNG and condensate storage tanks along with the jetty. The LNG liquefaction train and gas turbines/power distribution facilities will be on the LNG processing site.

Kentz scope of work includes instrument calibrations, testing of instrument loops, testing the electrical network monitoring and control system including all serial loops across both sites. Mobilization has already commenced.
