Pluto LNG Plant

Overview

Georgiou built Woodside’s Greenfield LNG processing site which involved 4 areas: Effluent treatment Plant; Site B East; Road 10; and Road 5.

blueVisions’ Role

  • Take over the programming and scheduling of a complex project which was running behind due to an inadequate initial contractor.
  • Provide guidance and advice for the direction of the project
  • Update baseline and schedule
  • Daily start-up meetings
  • Weekly reporting of risks, earned value slippage etc
  • Advice on resourcing

Project Scope

The scope of works include construction of reinforced foundations (insitu & precast), reinforced concrete basins & sumps, underground cabling, piping, drainage, and detailed earthworks. The construction is employing some 1,500 people.

Challenges

Taking over from a previous contractor who was unable to deal with the work, consequently, the project was 6 months behind. Needed to effect a smooth transition, however, only the baseline was supplied.

Stringent guidelines and procedures due to safety requirements of LNG requiring more documentation, and daily start-up meetings

  • Stringent guidelines and procedures due to safety requirements of LNG requiring more documentation, and daily start-up meetings
  • Construction process interface causing problems due to numerous contractors reporting to Georgiou
  • Understanding complex project and tasks
  • Dealing with the realities of a remote and isolated environment
  • Needed to understand specifications and plans in a very short time
  • Establish new and relevant communication practices and processes

Outcomes to date

blueVisions was able to step in to provide a clear picture and excellent direction to realign a project of some 2000 activities, which was lagging by 6 months.
