ENGINEERING and construction contractor Clough Limited has received a Letter of Intent from Woodside approving the initial expenditure of up to $30m for preliminary works for the LNG jetty berth for the Pluto LNG Project.
The preliminary works for the 300 metre long approach jetty for the Pluto LNG loadout berth contract will be undertaken in an equal joint venture with Interbeton bv of Holland (Harbourworks Clough Joint Venture), which recently successfully completed the Train 5 LNG Jetty extension as part of the North West Shelf Venture gas processing facilities on the Burrup Peninsula.
“The recently completed LNG Train 5 Jetty Expansion allowed the Joint Venture to provide our client with major construction equipment and a high performing team which builds on the successful Train 5 lessons learnt,” said Clough CEO John Smith.
These preliminary works are to firm up design to enable final works approval, which is expected early in 2008. Capital Projects, which includes this jetty construction project, is a fundamental part of Clough’s business.
