Tempo Australia has received a request for about 280 more workers to carry out its contract at the Chevron-operated Gorgon LNG project on Barrow Island.
In a statement today, Tempo said the requisition would bring the number of Tempo personnel at Gorgon to about 380.
Tempo provides managed structural, mechanical and piping, electrical and instrumentation craft labour for a joint venture between US company CB&I Constructors and Irish company Kentz, with the contract extended earlier this week for $50 million.
The joint venture was awarded a $US2.3 billion contract in 2011 to cover structural, mechanical and piping, and electrical and instrumentation work at Gorgon.
“We continue to be delighted by the positive contribution our people are making to the Gorgon project, and are pleased to be able to provide additional skilled people and resources to the mechanical, electrical and instrumentation contractor,” Tempo chairman Charlie Bontempo said.
