Perth-based Decmil Group has won a contract to provide temporary accommodation for ConocoPhillips workers at the Australia Pacific LNG facility on Curtis Island for an undisclosed sum.
Under the contract, the engineering and construction contractor will provide ConocoPhillips with accommodation for all shutdown workforce requirements, including major plant shutdowns, as APLNG project transitions to an operational phase.
Decmil managing director Scott Criddle said Homeground Gladstone, the company’s wholly owned subsidiary that was awarded the contract, had developed a strong reputation with the major project operators in the Gladstone region as a temporary workforce accommodation provider.
“This partnership with ConocoPhillips will see Homeground become an important service provider to APLNG by providing the infrastructure to manage all temporary workforce accommodation requirements,” he said.
Homeground provides similar services to Rio Tinto’s Yarwun Bauxite refinery in the same region.
Once in the operational phase, the APLNG project will comprise two LNG processing trains, each with a nameplate capacity of 4.5 million tonnes per annum.
The contract award follows news earlier this month that Decmil had been given an extension to its contract for work at QGC’s Queensland Curtis LNG project in Gladstone for $35 million.
Decmil shares were 1.5 per cent higher to $1 each at 11am.
