Joint venture in Western Australia

A Kellogg Brown & Root Joint Venture has signed a contract to provide engineering, procurement, and construction management services for one of Australia’s most important resource development projects, an LNG expansion on the Burrup Peninsula, Western Australia. The contract, worth approximately USD 142 million (ASD 280 million), was signed with the project operator, Woodside Energy Ltd, on behalf of the venture participants. The participants include Halliburton Australia (through its Kellogg Brown & Root division), JGC Corporation, Hatch-Kaiser Engineers, and Clough Engineering. The project will see the construction of a LNG processing train, with a capacity of 4.2 million tons of LNG per year. A 42â€? diameter pipeline connecting the plant and Woodside’s gas fields is also expected to be constructed. First LNG production from the new LNG train is scheduled for mid-2004. Industry briefings have already been held in Karratha and Perth for prospective contractors and suppliers to outline the scope of the project and the tendering process.
