The scope of work includes project management, engineering, safety and environmental risk management and procurement support. A cost and schedule estimate along with the project execution plans will also be developed.

The development concept to be studied in the FEED phase is based on four subsea wells routed via an 85 kilometers subsea wet gas pipeline to an onshore gas plant for processing for export through an onshore pipeline to tie-in at the Dampier to Bunbury natural gas pipeline (DBNGP).

Clough’s Chief Executive Officer, John Smith said, “Clough is delighted to get the opportunity to support BHP Billiton in the critical early stages of this important West Australian domestic gas project.”

The Macedon gas field is located in the Northern Carnarvon basin, approximately 100 kilometers west of Onslow and 40 kilometers north of Exmouth, Western Australia.
