McConnell Dowell gets the nod at Tangguh

Australian contractor picked by Saipem to fabricate major marine facilities for LNG expansion project in Indonesia

Australian contractor McConnell Dowell has been awarded a substantial sub-contract related to BP's Tangguh LNG expansion project in Indonesia.

The company's workscope includes a bulk offloading facility and the LNG and condensate loading jetty.

Chief executive Scott Cummins said the project would be another example of McConnell Dowell’s progress in delivering safe, smart, efficient infrastructure.

"We’re looking forward to starting this project, which will support our regional business and further strengthen our relationship with PT Saipem," he said.

Saipem is the main offshore and onshore contractor for the Tangguh expansion.

The Australian company's detailed scope of work for the bulk offloading facility involves building two finger piers and a quay wall; installation of sheet piles, tie-rods and waling beams, with 500 metre concrete capping beam; installation of marine furniture; and installation of a floating pontoon with gangway and catwalks.

The LNG and condensate loading jetty involves abutment and shoreline rock protection; access trestle; loading platform and impounding basin; and other facilities.
