UK-based Intertek has been awarded a dimensional control contract at Chevron's $29 billion Wheatstone liquefied natural gas project.
Intertek will provide geometric assurance during the fabrication of modules for the project in Malaysia and China, with surveyors located at the project's Ashburton North plant site to position the modules into their correct locations.
The company expects to create 10 new Australian jobs and support 15 current positions, including management roles located in Perth.
"Our track record in safely delivering quality modular construction is excellent largely because of our talented surveyors as well as our highly evolved dimensional control management system.”
The Wheatstone project will consist of two LNG trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 million tonnes per annum and a domestic gas plant.
First production from Wheatstone is targeted for 2016.
