Following awards to supply electrical cables for the Chevron Gorgon LNG project and other LNG developments in the region, the MacLean Electrical Group, through its wholly owned Australian business JT Day Pty Ltd, has secured two frame agreement awards from Bechtel for the Chevron operated Wheatstone Project.
Wheatstone is one of Australia’s largest resource projects and involves the construction of two liquefied natural gas (LNG) trains and a domestic gas plant 12 km west of Onslow on the Pilbara coast. Gas will be transported via a pipeline from an offshore processing platform 225 km off the coast to the onshore facilities. First LNG shipments are planned for 2016
The contracts were secured following significant involvement and close cooperation between the MacLean Electrical Group's Houston, UK and Australian business units, with much of the initial negotiation being undertaken in Houston.
