KGP plant is located 1,260kms north of Perth, in Western Australia and includes five LNG processing trains, two domestic gas trains, six condensate stabilization units, three LPG fractionation units along with storage and loading facilities for LNG, LPG and condensate.

UGL said that it has been providing services at the plant since 2015 and the plant is capable of producing 12,000tons of domestic gas per day.

Through the new contract works, UGL is expected to generate approximately $190m additional revenue and the contract includes two multi-year further extension options.

CIMIC Group chief executive officer Michael Wright said: “Securing this contract reflects UGL’s depth of experience in industrial maintenance and asset management, and CIMIC Group’s commitment to our longstanding relationship with Woodside Energy.”

The company’s joint venture with Cape is expected to provide brownfields implementation services including planning and execution of work scope for mechanical, electrical and instrumentation, access, fire protection application, blasting and painting, cladding and insulation.

UGL managing director Jason Spears said: “UGL is pleased to have secured this extension and we look forward to continuing to support Woodside in delivering safe and innovative services on this extensive project.”

In January 2019, UGL secured contract extensions worth $143.7m to provide maintenance and turnaround services for the Gorgon and Wheatstone facilities, and other projects in Australia.

Under the contract, UGL was expected to deliver mechanical, electrical, instrumentation and access services for maintenance, plant turnaround and brownfield execution services for the Gorgon and Wheatstone LNG projects operated by Chevron.

The two facilities are located in Western Australia and in the same state, UGL extended   its contracts to deliver integrated services for structural, mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation for existing clients.

In Victoria, the company was granted an extension of scope for providing maintenance and project-related services for the assets of an existing client.
