LNG Train IV Project

BGC Contracting was twice awarded ‘Contractor of the Month’ recognising the teams’ excellence in safety, quality, employee relations and overall performance on the project.

Representing an investment of A$27 billion, the Woodside-operated North West Shelf (NWS) Venture in Karratha, Western Australia, constitutes Australia’s largest oil and gas resource development. The fourth phase of this facilities development involved the construction of a 4.4 mtpa LNG processing train at the Karratha Gas Plant.

TRAIN 4 SITE PREPARATION

Woodside, on behalf of the NWS Venture, contracted BGC to undertake construction and testing of consolidated rock plate foundations to support the new LNG Train 4, associated pipe racks/tracks, substation 2, FAR 16, sulfinol facility and power generation facilities. The scope included bulk excavation to remove unsuitable sub grade material, crushing of materials to produce backfill material, and backfilling of site. Earthworks, concrete work, electrical works and buildings for the Train 4 facilities were also completed by BGC.

TRUCKLINE ONSHORE TERMINAL

In 2002, BGC was awarded a second contract associated with Train 4, which formed part of the Phase 4 Expansion Project. An initial $12 million contract was signed for site preparations works associated with the Trunkline Onshore Terminal. The contract was later extended to include an additional $11 million of variations.

The Site Preparation Works required 90,000T of rock to be crushed and placed as foundation material. 180 linear metres of reinforced concrete walls were be built, with heights varying from 1m to 5m. Earthworks were filled with 25,000m3 of cut and temporary buildings were supplied and erected for future use by subsequent erection contractors. The variation works included over 4,000m3 concrete, construction of pipe rack footings, pedestals, manholes and associated service works.

BGC Contracting was twice awarded ‘Contractor of the Month’ recognising the teams’ excellence in safety, quality, employee relations and overall performance on the project.

MISCELLANEOUS CIVIL WORKS

After completing the first two contracts to a high safety and quality standard, BGC was contracted to complete various civil works to assist in the completion of Woodside’s Train 4 Expansion. Works undertaken included earthworks, plant hire, drainage, paving, culvert installation, concrete, erection of 216 transportable buildings (including concrete footings and associated electrical wiring), electrical trenching and backfill.

BGC Contracting was later engaged to undertake further civil works for the construction of the LNG Train 5 Project.
