In January 2011, Civmec were awarded a contract through Leighton Contractors the supply of circa 46,000m3 of precast concrete footings for the Gorgon Barrow Island LNG onshore process plant.
Leveraging our strategic waterfront location, all precast components were manufactured at our Henderson facility. Throughout the course of the project, this scope expanded to include large manholes, walls, culverts, intake structures and slabs with some items weighing up to 130t.
Chevron’s Gorgon Project is one of the world’s largest natural gas projects and the largest single resource project in Australia’s history. The Gorgon Project will develop the Gorgon and Jansz-Io gas fields, located within the Greater Gorgon area, about 130 kilometres off the north-west coast of Western Australia. It includes the construction of a 15 million tonne per annum (MTPA) Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plant on Barrow Island and a domestic gas plant with the capacity to provide 300 terajoules per day to supply gas to Western Australia.
At the project’s peak, Civmec’s highly-skilled project team were producing over 1,250m3 of precast concrete components and tieing over 60t of rebar per day, making the company the biggest consistent user of concrete in Australia, according to supplier information. The successful delivery of this project to strict quality and schedule requirements affirms the company’s position as one of the largest pre-casters in Australia.
