Since 1995 they have contracted Transfield Worley to provide sustaining capital and operations support services to their assets on the North West Shelf. To ensure the competitiveness of these arrangements and to reposition themselves for a major capital investment, Woodside went to the market to test all their value-for-money options. They required a contractor who would accept additional responsibility and, as a result, free up key Woodside personnel to manage their expanding portfolio.
Transfield Worley was awarded the provision of project management, engineering and design, procurement and installation services for brownfield projects, and shutdown and maintenance services for Woodside’s gas assets including the provision of skilled tradespersons. The scope encompasses LNG, LPG and DOMGAS plants as well as associated offshore facilities including two of the world’s largest gas production platforms and a floating production, storage and off take vessel.
The Woodside relationship remains fundamentally important to WorleyParsons with nearly 1,000 personnel directly engaged in supporting their projects.
