WGPSN Secures PNG LNG Contract

Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) has been awarded a contract by Esso Highlands Limited, a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation, to provide engineering, procurement, construction and maintenance services to support its Papua New Guinea (PNG) liquefied natural gas (LNG) operations.

Under the contract, WGPSN will provide brownfield engineering and procurement support to ExxonMobil’s operations in PNG, including construction and maintenance services to both the Hides gas conditioning plant in the highlands, and the LNG plant northwest of Port Moresby. It is effective from August 1, 2013.

Matt Gavin, managing director for WGPSN Australia & Asia Pacific said: “We are thrilled with the award of this contract, which enables us to cement our position in the Asia Pacific LNG market.

“WGPSN has a long history with ExxonMobil globally, providing operations and technical support through integrated brownfield and engineering service contracts in Australia and Asia Pacific, the United States, and Africa.”

The PNG LNG Project is an integrated development that includes natural gas production and processing facilities, onshore and offshore pipelines, and liquefaction facilities. The PNG LNG Project is operated by Esso Highlands Limited, a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation, in co-venture with Oil Search Limited, National Petroleum Company PNG Limited, Santos Limited, JX Nippon Oil and Gas Exploration Corporation, Mineral Resources Development Company Limited and Petromin PNG Holdings Limited, and their affiliates.
