Mining and energy sector services company, Tempo Australia said that it has secured a requisition for additional Tempo personnel to be provided onsite under its sub-contract at the Chevron-operated Gorgon LNG project, on Barrow Island in Western Australia.
This new requisition increases the expected number of Tempo personnel onsite at the Gorgon project to approximately 380 – around 90% structural, mechanical and piping trades people and the remainder electrical & instrumentation trades people, the company said in a statement.
Tempo is expecting to have mobilised all personnel by December 2015.
Tempo has a contract to provide SMP and E&I craft labour for construction, pre-commissioning and commissioning services to the mechanical, electrical and instrumentation contractor on the Gorgon project.
The contract has grown significantly since its award in May 2015, with Tempo-supplied personnel onsite increasing from the initial request of around 100, referenced when the contract was granted, to now exceeding 380.
