The BAM Clough joint venture has been awarded an additional $53 million order for the Papua New Guinea liquefied natural gas condensate offloading jetty, 20 kilometres north of Port Moresby, after receiving a letter of intent from the Chiyoda JGC joint venture.
Clough said the new work order was for the fabrication and construction of the topsides for the jetty, bringing the total value of contracts awarded to BAM Clough for the PNG LNG jetty project to $308 million.

“Clough and our long-term partner BAM International are delighted to be given the opportunity to deliver the topsides for this EPC project, which will provide continuity of quality work for our yard in Thailand” said Clough chief executive John Smith.
