Engineering and construction firm Valmec has won a contract to supply its services to APA Group’s $140 million Eastern Goldfields Gas Pipeline project for an undisclosed sum.
The scope of work involves the supply, fabrication, installation, construction and testing of facilities at the project, with work to begin immediately.
When complete, APA Group will transport gas to mining operations in the eastern Goldfields through three of its interconnected pipeline – the Goldfields Gas Pipeline, the Murrin Murrin Lateral, and the new 292-kilometre Eastern Goldfields Pipeline, which is currently under construction by a joint venture between French company Spiecapag and Sydney-based AJ Lucas.
The Eastern Goldfields pipeline will transport gas to AngloGold Ashanti’s Sunrise Dam and Tropicana gold mines.
“We are delighted to have received this latest contract award from APA Group on this strategic WA project and we are looking forward to continuing our strong working relationship,” Valmec managing director Steve Dropulich said.
The contract is expected to be completed by November.
Meanwhile, mining services company Tempo Australia has been awarded a subcontract for the provision of temporary labour for the construction and commissioning services to a contractor on Chevron's Gorgon gas project on Barrow Island for an undisclosed amount.
"We see it as further testament to our ability to deliver high quality, cost-effective services and solutions to leading mining and energy sector clients," chairman Charlie Bontempo said.
Valmec shares were unchanged at 17.5 cents each at 12pm.
Tempo shares were 6.6 per cent lower to 7 cents.
