Leighton wins $150m more Chevron work

Leighton Holdings' value of work at Chevron's massive Gorgon gas project has risen past $1 billion after it, in consortium with Saipem, was awarded a further $150 million of work to build the project's liquefied natural gas jetty and marine structure.

The Saipem Leighton Consortium today said it had been issued a variation for work relating to the design, fabrication and installation of pre-assembled racks (PARs) for the 2.1 kilometre LNG Jetty, in addition to the original $900 million dollar scope.

The PAR design, fabrication, transport and installation will be integrated into the existing Gorgon Jetty project design and construction process. Design of the PARs has already started and fabrication is likely to start in late 2010, with installation works to be complete by late 2013.

The original scope of work consists of the design, material supply, fabrication, construction and commissioning of the LNG Jetty.

Construction is scheduled to commence in early 2011 on Barrow Island, 70 kilometres off the Pilbara coast of Western Australia.
