Civmec nets Woodside contract for Pluto-Karratha project

Australian largest LNG company Woodside has awarded a supply and fabrication contract to compatriot Civmec for the Pluto-Karratha gas plant interconnector project.

Under the deal, Civmec will carry out the fabrication of structural steel, piping, a module and skids located within the Pluto LNG plant.

Woodside expects construction of the piping and modules will support around 40 local jobs.

The works will run for approximately seven months, starting in 2020.

Pluto LNG plant, located on the Burrup Peninsula near Karratha, will support the interconnector project.

The interconnector will transport gas from Pluto to the North West Shelf project’s Karratha plant via a 5 km pipeline.

The pipeline will be constructed along the existing Dampier to Bunbury natural gas pipeline corridor.

Woodside says the interconnector has the potential to create opportunities to take advantage of future excess capacity at the Karratha plant.

It will also provide the potential to boost future developments of Pluto gas reserves, as well as third-party resources.

To remind, Woodside announced a final investment decision on the pipeline component of the interconnection in August last year.

The company has also entered into deals with DDG Operations for the construction of the pipeline and its maintenance. The latter is a part of the Australian Gas Infrastructure Group.

Construction and operation of the pipeline is subject to regulatory approvals by Western Australia.

This also includes completing commercial deals with the Pluto and North West Shelf JV participants.

Woodside sees launching of the interconnector in 2022.
