Local Content in WA – The Flow on Effect

The major Oil and Gas Projects in Western Australia have created significant opportunities for local industry
to engage with international project proponents and EPCMs in the pursuit of local supply and servicing.

Laurie Barlow will discuss the importance for Australian firms to develop the capabilities they need to take part in the global supply chain. He will also describe the ‘flow on effect’ and discuss the challenges and benefits AGC has experienced, using case studies and projects from clients such as Chevron (Gorgon Joint Venture) and Foster Wheeler Worley Parsons Joint Venture.

AGC provide a range of fabrication, construction and integrated services to natural resource development companies.
