Australia: Thiess JV Wins Wheatstone Job

Thiess JV Wins Wheatstone Job

A joint venture between Thiess and EV LNG Australia (EVT) has won an approximately $500 million contract to build LNG storage and condensate tanks for the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project, a LNG and domestic gas project in Western Australia.

The EVT JV is responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction of two LNG full containment storage tanks which have a capacity of 150,000 cubic metres each and two condensate storage tanks with a capacity of 120,000 cubic metres each. The project is located near Onslow in the WA’s north west. The project will create 475 jobs and 75% of the work under this contract will take place in Australia.

Thiess Managing Director Bruce Munro welcomed the contract as a further endorsement of Thiess’ capabilities in the sector and said it continues the company’s productive and ongoing relationship with Chevron. He said the JV had been formed to draw on the international LNG tank capability of EV LNG Australia, which is a wholly owned Australian subsidiary of Entrepose Projets and Vinci Construction Grands Projets of France, as well as Thiess’ previous LNG tank experience including the Darwin LNG tanks.

The joint venture brings a unique combination of capabilities that will deliver a high quality outcome and bring certainty to these large complex projects,” Mr Munro said.

Thiess is excited to be at the forefront of providing critical infrastructure needed for this rapidly growing industry.”

This is Thiess’ third project on the Wheatstone LNG project. Thiess in joint venture is already contracted to Bechtel, which is managing the contract for Chevron, to deliver the design and construction of the breakwater and materials offloading facility. Thiess is also contracted to Chevron to deliver the microtunnel on the project site. Work will commence immediately with construction to begin on site in 2013 and is scheduled for completion by in 2016.

Thiess is also completing two contracts for Chevron on the Gorgon LNG project at Barrow Island – the Construction Village, and the Site Preparation and Temporary Facilities.

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
