Thiess wins fourth Wheatstone LNG contract

By Sarah Ann McCay23 April 2012

Australia's Thiess has been awarded an AU$ 450 million (US$ 465 million) contract from Bechtel for site preparation works on the downstream portion of the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project in Western Australia.

The Leighton Holdings subsidiary will undertake the bulk and final finish earthworks for the liquefied natural gas (LNG) and domestic gas project, including work on the plant, storm water drainage system and access roads.

The new project is the fourth contract for Thiess working on the Wheatstone LNG site. In joint venture with various international partners, Thiess is already contracted to Bechtel to construct the materials offloading facility and LNG and condensate tanks. Thiess is also contracted to Chevron to deliver the Wheatstone microtunnel.

Work will begin towards the end of the year with site preparation works scheduled for completion in early 2014.

Thiess is also completing the construction village and the
site preparation and temporary facilities for Chevron on the Gorgon LNG project at Barrow Island.
