LNG Train V Project

Following the successful delivery of the LNG Train 4 Project, Woodside engaged BGC Contracting to provide civil services for the completion of a fifth LNG processing train for the North West Shelf (NWS) Venture in Karratha, Western Australia.


The contract award was to complete the major greensfields civil construction works for the Train 5 LNG process plant. Whilst called the Greenfields package, the works were located within the existing North West Shelf Venture’s Onshore Gas Plant on the Burrup Peninsula.

The scope of works, with a contract sum of approximately AUD $80 million, involved the installation of approximately 22,000 cubic metres of structural concrete and footings, the installation of approximately 400 kilometres of electrical and instrumentation wiring, building works (including HVAC and smoke detection system) and as well as associated civil works for the complete LNG 5 processing train.

During the project, BGC was requested by the client to accelerate the works to enable earlier receipt of plant modules ex Indonesia. BGC was able to deliver all components of the contract 4 months earlier than initially scheduled.

BGC later returned to the project, having secured another contract to complete civil construction works for the brownfields area of the Train 5 Project.

The scope of works included concrete foundations (10,100m3), earthworks, underground cable installation, pre-cast and insitu trenching, pipework, electrical, instrumentation and communication works, underground services, stormwater drainage, building works including structural steel, cladding and architectural finishes. The scope also allows for relocation of existing facilities and services. The BGC site team was able to complete all components of the project before the Christmas shutdown period.


On the back of the strong relationship BGC has built with Woodside, BGC was awarded a further $19 million contract for civil works to upgrade the road used to transport material from the MOF Wharf to the Train 5 project site. The scope involved widening of the existing MOF road to transport heavy modules from the wharf to the train 5 site, comprising of drilling, blasting, cut to fill, trenching installation of electrical and power, heritage clearing, road seal and traffic control.


The securing upgrade works was the fourth contract awarded to BGC for the Train 5 site. The work was for the supply and installation of 6.5 km security fencing and 12 new gates around the perimeter of the plant, the upgrade of the Main Gate car park and entry to the Gas Plant. BGC also completed repairs to a 150m section of seawall which was damaged during the 2005-2006 cyclone seasons, and the reinstatement and upgrade of a disturbed roadway. The seawall repairs required the installation of a 20m long, 3m high precast concrete retaining wall and the importation and placement of 10,000t of rock armour.
