Agility extends Gorgon business

July 3 - Agility has a new scope of work to support the Gorgon natural gas project in Western Australia, writes Adam Flensborg Safikhany.

The scope of work, estimated in value at AUD232 million (USD238 million) over two years, will see Agility providing logistics, stevedoring, and related services in support of the Marine Loading Facility in Henderson, Perth Austraila.

Agility was further granted a two-year extension of its existing contract to support supply base operations and transportation services, under which the stevedoring services have been added.

"The additional services and extension of our contract is a testimony to the hard work and commitment that our team has shown. We are committed to working safely even in the most challenging environments, and look forward to continuing our partnership for some time to come." said Mick Turnbull, Agility's Australasia ceo.

Agility has appointed Patrick Stevedoring Pty Ltd, part of Australia's publically-listed Asciano Ltd, as the prime subcontractor for the stevedoring services.

"We are confident that we can play an important part in this project," said Philip Tonks, Patrick Stevedoring Division general manager.

Bill Muir, Agility's project manager for the Gorgon Project added, "The combination of Patrick Stevedoring with Agility's in-depth, will provide our customer with strong and personalised service."

The extended term of the contract (including the new stevedoring services) has now commenced and runs through April 28, 2014.

The Gorgon Project is one of the world's largest natural gas projects and the largest single-resource project in Australia's history. It is operated by Chevron and is a joint venture of the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (47.3 percent), ExxonMobil (25 percent), Shell (25 percent), Osaka Gas (1.25 percent), Tokyo Gas (1 percent) and Chubu Electric Power (0.417 percent).
