CB&I said it has been awarded a contract by Bechtel valued in excess of US$625 million (approximately A$690 million) to provide structural, mechanical and piping construction work for all outside battery limits modules and associated units for the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project at Ashburton North in Western Australia.
“CB&I is proud of its 75-year history in Australia, where we have an excellent safety performance and a successful LNG track record,” said Patrick K. Mullen, President of CB&I’s Engineering, Construction and Maintenance operating group. “This award builds on CB&I’s involvement in many of the major LNG and other oil and gas projects in this important region of the world.”
The Wheatstone Project is one of Australia’s largest resource projects. The project will consist of two LNG trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 million tonnes per annum and a domestic gas plant.
