A multi-disciplinary construction company has won a tender for part of a $15.8 billion gas development in Western Australia’s Pilbara region.
Civmec Construction and Engineering recently secured the supply and fabrication contract for Woodside Energy’s Pluto-Karratha Gas Plant (KGP) Interconnector on the Burrup Peninsula, 28km northwest of Karratha.
The successful contractor will be tasked with fabricating structural steel, piping, a module and skids in the existing Pluto Liquefied Natural Gas Plant, which will be used to support the Interconnector project. Work is expected to last for about seven months and create 40 jobs in the process.
Civmec is hiring for the following fly-in fly-out vacancies:
- rigger advanced
- administrator site
- supervisor shutdown
- machine operator
- crane operators
- electrical tradesperson
- mechanical fitter
- steel fixer
- scaffolder advanced
- pipe fitter
- trades assistant
- welder special class
- superintendent SMP
- concrete worker
- concrete finisher
- trainer and assessor
The full project involves installing a 30 inch-wide and 5km long pipeline along the existing Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline corridor, linking the plant to the KGP. It will also require a new metering station, inlet point, pig launcher, pig receiver and outlet. Nearly 3200 jobs will be created throughout the entire construction phase.
Once complete gas will be treated in gas conditioning facilities at Pluto LNG before being transported through the pipeline to the KGP. The Interconnector will have a capacity exceeding than 5 million tonnes per annum of wet gas.
