JV signs up for RasGas maintenance

05 November 2004
A three-strong joint venture, comprising Transfield Services and Worley, both of Australia, and the local TRAGS, signed on 1 November the landmark consolidated maintenance contract for Ras Laffan Liquefied Natural Gas Company (RasGas). The five-year contract, considered to be one of the first long-term maintenance deals for a major energy company in Qatar, is valued at $82 million (MEED 12:3:04).

About four other groups were competing for the contract, which also contains two one-year options. The majority of the maintenance work will be at RasGas' liquefaction plant, where the company has previously employed a number of contractors to undertake maintenance. The contract also covers offshore work.

The contract is the second long-term maintenance contract to be signed by RasGas this year. In May, PII Pipeline Solutions, part of US-based GE Energy, signed a six-year contract, which will initially cover the 100-kilometre natural gas pipeline linking platforms in the North field to RasGas' train 3 facilities.
