Downer wins massive Gorgon contract on Barrow Island

Downer EDI has secured a $170 million contract for work at the Gorgon project on Barrow Island.

According to the company, the 12 months contract is for miscellaneous works, and includes an option to extend the period.

The contract will create approximately 400 new jobs, predominately located on Barrow Island.

The scope of the work includes structural and piping erection; mechanical installations; electrical and instrumentation services; civil works; pre-commissioning; and commissioning/start-up assistance.

The Gorgon Project is one of Australia’s single biggest developments with an estimated resource base of more than 40 trillion cubic feet of gas and a nominal development life of around 60 years.

Gorgon is expected to have an annual production capacity of 15.6 million tonnes of LNG, exporting to countries like Japan and China

But the first LNG from the project has been pushed back from the original date of 2014 to 2015 as development costs rise to $52bn, a cost blowout of $9 billion.
