Clough wins Waitsia expansion gig

Australian engineering firm Clough has secured a contract for the second stage of the Waitsia gas project in Western Australia.

A unit of Japan’s Mitsui & Co, along with its partner in the Waitsia JV Beach Energy, awarded the engineering, procurement and construction gig to Clough.

The engineering firm did not disclose additional details of the contract only saying that the construction phase would include about 200 jobs.

To remind, the Waisia JV announced a final investment decision on the second stage in late December after signing third-party tolling deals with Australia’s Woodside and its North West Shelf LNG venture partners.

Furhermore, the JV said then initial construction activities would start from July 2021.

Mitsui, that holds a 50% interest in the Waitsia through AWE, expects production to start in the second half of 2023.

The expansion project has a price tag of A$768 million ($592.6 million).

The Waitsia gas field located in the Perth Basin is one of the top five largest gas fields ever discovered onshore in Australia.

The second stage involves further development of the gas field, with more wells and a new production facility capable of producing 250 TJ/day.

The new supply will go to Woodside’s Karratha LNG plant but also for domestic gas.
