Civmec bags two oil & gas gigs in Australia
Australian oilfield services provider Civmec has been awarded two oil and gas industry related contracts on behalf of GE Oil & Gas and FMC Technologies, respectively.
On behalf of GE Oil & Gas, Civmec will be constructing and testing Chevron-operated Gorgon project’s new 34 inch Subsea Pig Launcher/Receiver (SSPLR) in two stages.
According to Civment, the first phase of works will start immediately and involve the fabrication of a 34 inch barrel for a Subsea Pig Receiver from supplied materials, with the complete structure weighing 104 tonnes. Completion of Stage 1 is scheduled for November 2015.
Fabrication of a 6 inch kicker header, testing of the SSPLR and retro fitting will be carried out at a later date as part of Stage 2 works.
Furthermore, as part of the FMC Technologies contract, Civmec will start fabrication, surface treatment and testing of a production manifold. The manifold is designed for installation at the Persephone Project, located on Australia’s North West Shelf and is scheduled for completion by March 2016.
