Kentz wins A$150 million telecommunications contract for Chevron’s Gorgon Project in Australia

Engineering and construction group Kentz Corporation (LSE: KNZ) announced that it had secured a second contract win related to the massive Gorgon Project in Western Australia.

The Gorgon Project is a 40 trillion cubic feet (tcf) gas field that is being developed by Chevron, ExxonMobil and Shell.  The field is located between 130 kilometres and 200 kilometres off the north-west coast of Western Australia, and is the largest gas resource in the country.

Kentz’s contract includes the design, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of the telecommunications scope on Barrow Island.

“The remoteness of the project site calls for the use of state of-the-art telecommunications technology, including converged IP networks for multiple data streams, satellite data communications, navigational aids including radar and vessel tracking, meteorological and oceanographic systems, site wide WAN/LAN with network management, central fire and security monitoring, and data transmission on both fiber optic and microwave,” Kentz stated.
