WDS Limited (WDS) celebrates nine years of service delivery to Santos Limited with the signing of a $24 million (with a one year option to extend) Construction Services Agreement for the GLNG Upstream Project. WDS also has marked its further support of the burgeoning CSG industry in the Surat Basin with a new WDS facility in Roma. This new facility will enhance the value of the personnel, plant, equipment and works provided to the GLNG Upstream Project and other projects.
WDS Managing Director Terry Chapman said that “WDS has been working for Santos in the Fairview gas fields since 2003. This project and the new facility continue this relationship and provides WDS with a further opportunity to showcase its capability to deliver CSG infrastructure projects including WDS’ award-winning approach to safety and exemplary environmental care.”
“We are particularly encouraged by the increasing activity in the CSG sector where WDS currently have over 350 employees working on two of the major CSG-LNG projects. To further support these CSG opportunities, and overcome an accommodation shortage, we have recently approved the construction of a further 60 rooms at our Springwater construction camp, east of Injune in the Surat Basin, bringing the total WDS accommodation capacity to 264 rooms at Springwater alone.” Mr Chapman added.
WDS’ very active Energy and Infrastructure Division will be a Principal Contractor to Santos and will carry out field installation of gathering systems for the connection of Coal Seam Gas (CSG) wells in Santos’ Fairview gas fields. WDS’ workscope is multi-disciplined and will include civil, mechanical, electrical and instrumentation aspects of the management and construction of field and trunk pipelines and CSG wellhead connections. WDS is a leading integrated provider of specialist development, design, engineering, construction, fabrication and maintenance related services to the energy, mining, and infrastructure sectors.
