CLOUGH AWARDED ENGINEERING, PROCUREMENT AND CONSTRUCTION SCOPE ON THE
WAITSIA STAGE 2 PROJECT IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA
Murray & Roberts is pleased to announce that Clough has been awarded an approximate AU$400
million contract for an engineering, procurement and construction scope of work on the Waitsia Stage 2
development project in Western Australia by Waitsia Joint Venture partners Mitsui E&P Australia and
The Stage 2 project includes a new 250 TJ/day gas processing plant with a 20-year life cycle that will
convey gas via the nearby Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline. The Waitsia gas field is ranked as
one of the largest gas fields ever discovered onshore in Australia and it is forecast to bring significant
economic benefits to the mid-west region from both the construction and operating phases. Clough’s
scope of work relates to a gas processing plant including power generation.
Clough and the client have worked together for the past two years to optimise the project design. The
project is set to commence during the first quarter of the 2021 calendar year and will bring significant
economic benefits to the region as well as the state.
The expectations for economic recovery after COVID-19 are uncertain and revised frequently. The
Group is, however, well positioned to operate through the short to medium term uncertainty.
Recently awarded new projects are expected to start contributing towards earnings during FY2021 H2,
and the financial results for FY2021 H2 is expected to show an improvement when compared to that of
the first half. The Board believes the Group will return to profitability in FY2021 and continue its path to
earnings growth beyond.
The information contained in this announcement has not been reviewed or reported on by the
Company’s external auditors.
