Civmec has won several Northern Gas Pipeline project contracts including camp set-up, site civil and structural steel fabrication.
It has also been awarded the structural, mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation (SMPEI) installation works at the Phillip Creek Compressor Station (PCCS) near Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory.
The scope of work includes the establishment of a 200-man camp, site civil works involving underground services, earthworks, concrete works and fencing.
The SMPEI works involve installation of the gas treatment equipment, residue gas compressor packages, export gas compressor packages, control room, switch room, as well as various other components.
The project will require more than 160 personnel to be employed at its peak, with completion scheduled for August 2018.
Civmec chief executive officer Patrick Tallon described the NGP contracts as significant and strategic
award for the company.
Combined with the scope growth at the Inpex project in Darwin, it would see an enlargement of Civmec’s on-site capabilities within the oil and gas division and an expansion of the brand in the Northern Territory.
“We are delighted to secure Jemena as a new client and are very focused on ensuring that together we deliver these contracts safely and effectively,” he said.
The new project takes the group’s order book to about $640 million.
The $800 million NGP project involves construction of a 622km gas pipeline between Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory and Mount Isa in order to connect Territory gas fields to the east-coast gas market.
