Civmec, the service provider for the oil industry said that it has been awarded $64 million of new projects while expanding some of the existing contracts.
Besides work for Rio Tinto on the company’s mines in the Pilbara region, Civmec will be fabricating and testing Gorgon’s new 34 inch Subsea Pig Launcher/Receiver (SSPLR) in two stages, on behalf of GE Oil & Gas, the company said in a statement.
Stage 1 works will commence immediately and involve the fabrication of a 34-inch barrel for a subsea pig receiver from supplied materials, with the complete structure weighing 104 tonnes. Completion of Stage 1 is scheduled for November 2015. Fabrication of a 6-inch kicker header, testing of the SSPLR and retrofitting will be carried out at a later date as part of Stage 2 works.
Civmec also informed it will begin work on behalf of FMC Technologies for the fabrication, surface treatment and testing of a production manifold. The manifold is designed for installation at the Persephone project, located on Australia’s North West Shelf and is scheduled for completion by March 2016.
