Worley wins $235m Wheatstone deal

Engineering company WorleyParsons has won a contract for construction management services on the onshore component of the Wheatstone liquefied natural gas (LNG) project.

The estimated revenue to be received by Worley under the contract is A$235 million.

The $29 billion Wheatstone project includes two LNG processing trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 million tonnes per year and a domestic gas plant, to be built at the Ashburton North industrial estate near Onslow.

To execute this project, construction driven project teams will be located in Perth, Houston, onsite at Ashburton North and in selected fabrication yards in Asia, Worley said in a statement.

Worley said it would be an integral part of the "owner's team" on the Wheatstone development, which is majority owned and operated by Chevron.

The labour supplied by Worley Parsons under the contract will be embedded in the Chevron team working on the Wheatstone Project.

It is estimated up to 250 jobs will be created from a wide range of disciplines, including engineering, business services, environmental, health and safety.

The main engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor on the downstream part of the project is Houston-based Bechtel.
