- EPCM, as part of Kellogg Joint Venture Gorgon, for all downstream facilities on the Gorgon Project – one of the world's largest natural gas developments on Barrow Island, 60 km off the coast of Western Australia, which includes three 5.2 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) LNG trains, a domestic gas plant, and product storage and offloading facilities.
- Barrow Island is not only a remote location, but also a Class A Nature Reserve. Chevron Australia, operator of the Project, implemented a comprehensive quarantine management system to protect the island’s ecology, which Hatch adhered to.
- Project’s downstream scope focused on three 5.2 Mtpa LNG processing trains, the LNG storage facility, jetty, a domestic gas plant, utilities and materials offloading facility.
- Hatch, in joint venture, completed the front-end engineering and design phase through to fabrication, construction and execution of the project’s downstream facilities.
- We delivered the design, documentation, award and construction management of the major early work contracts and equipment packages.
- Due to the limited construction footprint on Barrow Island, the Project adopted a modular construction and execution strategy. More than 240,000 tonnes of modules and pre-assembled rack and units were built in fabrication yards in Asia and then shipped to site.
- More than 800 Hatch engineering, technical, and support personnel at the peak working from 8 countries in 15 locations.
