ENGINEERING AND CONSTRUCTION company Clough has announced its 50-50 joint venture with AMEC has been awarded a contract valued at approximately $25 million to provide construction management services for the rejuvenation of Oil Search’s Kumul Marine Terminal.
The terminal is located approximately 40 km off the south coast of PNG and exports crude oil through tanker offloading facilities.
The scope of work includes construction management, pre-mobilisation preparation and project materials staging prior to offshore implementation.
Onshore preparation has commenced and will run until the end of 2011. The offshore work will last approximately four months with project completion planned for April 2012.
“We are delighted to be selected by Oil Search to assist with this important rejuvenation project,” Clough CEO John Smith said.
“The award recognises the investment we have made in strengthening the management team and project delivery systems in the business. We will work diligently with AMEC to deliver safe and successful project outcomes for Oil Search.”
AMEC’s director for Australia and South East Asia, Steve Ciccone said the venture looked forward to working alongside Oil Search to further develop an important asset.
Extending the life of the Kumul Marine Terminal is an important requirement for the LNG project, in which Oil Search has a 29% stake. The project will produce additional associated liquids which will be exported through the terminal.
