John Holland today announced it has been awarded a marine subcontract worth in excess of $90 million which forms part of the works for GLNG’s proposed Curtis Island LNG facility.
Under the subcontract, to be delivered for GLNG’s EPC contractor Bechtel Australia Pty Ltd, John Holland will design and construct a new product loading facility comprising a 360-metre jetty and loading platform.
Included in the contract scope is the procurement, fabrication, construction and commissioning of the structural, mechanical and electrical components of the product loading facility.
John Holland Group Managing Director, Glenn Palin, said: “Today’s announcement follows our recent success with GLNG’s project for the construction of marine offloading facilities and builds on our long history in delivering of large-scale marine infrastructure works in the energy and resources sector.
This project will draw on our industry leading capabilities in this area, underpinning our strategic push into the LNG sector.” General Manager of John Holland’s Minerals & Industrial business, David Balmer, said: “This is a significant project for John Holland, aligned to the long term strategy of our business and our continued expansion into the LNG sector. We are proud to be selected to design and construct this important piece of infrastructure for GLNG.”
The contract builds on John Holland’s recent success in the energy and resources and minerals sectors, following a recent contract win for Chevron’s Gorgon development and a FEED contract win for Woodside Energy’s Browse LNG development in Western Australia, and the ongoing delivery of Apache Energy’s Devil Creek onshore gas plant, also in Western Australia. John Holland also continues to deliver the major marine infrastructure expansion projects across Australia, including expansion works at the Cape Lambert Port B project in Western Australia, and completed expansion works at the Abbot Point Coal Terminal in Bowen, Queensland and the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal in Mackay, Queensland.
Construction of the new product loading facility will commence in August with completion expected in 2013.
