Bid evaluations are in full swing for the major offshore engineering, procurement and construction contracts on offer at the Shell-led Crux gas project in Western Australia.

Crux is an all-offshore development from which the produced gas will be an important source of new supply into Shell’s giant Prelude floating liquefied natural gas facility.

The project was suspended in the first quarter last year due to the impacts of Covid-19, but has quietly regained momentum.
