Valmec secures contract to help energise Gruyere gold project

Energy services provider Valmec has secured¬†several service and construction contracts for prominent gas and infrastructure projects,¬†primarily for work on the APA Group’s Yamarna gas pipeline in the Eastern Goldfields, Western Australia.

The 198-kilometre Yamarna pipeline is crucially integrated with the Gruyere gold project in the Yamarna greenstone belt, for which it supplies gas power. The Gruyere gold project, a joint venture between Gold Fields and Gold Road Resources, last month secured a $400 million contract with mining giant Downer EDI.

Valmec’s contract work for the APA Group will include the construction, fabrication and installation of metering and delivery stations; civil construction work for the Dampier Bunbury pipeline, which is owned and operated by DBP and runs near the full length of Western Australia from top to tip; and infrastructure services work for CBH’s Mirambeena project outside of Albany.

Valmec called the contracts a “testament to the company’s broad range of execution capabilities, as well as its growing prominence in the gas sector”.
