CIMIC Group’s UGL has been awarded a long-term maintenance contract with Chevron Australia for works in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.
In accordance with orders placed by Chevron under the master contract, UGL will deliver front-line and campaign maintenance, brownfield execution scopes and turnaround events at Chevron-operated facilities in Western Australia.
UGL expects the contract, which has an extendable term up to 10 years, to generate revenue of approximately $40 million per annum.
CIMIC Group Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Juan Santamaria said: “We are proud to be a partner to one of Australia’s leading natural gas suppliers and to support the local community. It is expected this contract will generate job opportunities, with around 300 future positions, and we intend to fill as many as possible locally. We will also support regional businesses by sourcing more than half of our subcontracted services from the area.”
UGL Managing Director Doug Moss said: “UGL is the market leader in maintenance services across the oil and gas sector. This contract ensures we can build on our position as a long-standing local employer in Western Australia. We look forward to continuing our strong relationship with Chevron Australia through the delivery of safe, effective and quality outcomes.”
Works under the scope of the contract are expected to commence in November 2021.
