AusGroup Limited subsidiary AGC Industries Pty Ltd (“AGC”), a leading Australian based construction and fabrication company today announced it has been awarded additional fabrication work to the value of approximately AUD20 million on the Chevron-operated Gorgon Project, taking the total contract value to more than AUD70 million.

AGC’s scope of work involves high specification fabrication of stainless and carbon steel pipework, non-destructive testing, post weld heat treatment, blasting and LNG specification painting related to the LNG modules for trains 1-3 on the Gorgon Project. Fabrication will be undertaken at AGC’s manufacturing and fabrication facilities in Kwinana and Henderson, Western Australia.

“Our ongoing work on the Gorgon Pipe Spools contract has been extended with an upgrade to the original contract that was awarded to AGC in May 2011, which was valued at approximately AUD50 million. This takes the total contract value to more than AUD70 million.

Securing this extension of works will create further job opportunities in Western Australia” said Laurie Barlow, CEO & Managing Director.

The Gorgon Project is one of the world’s largest natural gas projects and the single largest resource development in Australia’s history. It is operated by an Australian subsidiary of Chevron and is a joint venture of the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (47.3 percent), with the Australian subsidiaries of ExxonMobil (25 percent), Shell (25 percent), Osaka Gas (1.25 percent), Tokyo Gas (1 percent) and Chubu Electric Power (0.417 percent).

With this contract award, AusGroup’s order book now stands at AUD280 million.
