MELBOURNE, Australia - July 3, 2012 - Agility, a leading global logistics provider, announced a new scope of work to support the Gorgon natural gas project in Western Australia. The scope of work, estimated in value at A$232 million over two years, will have Agility providing logistics, stevedoring, and related services in support of the Marine Loading Facility in Henderson, Perth. Agility was further granted a two-year extension of its existing contract to support supply base operations and transportation services, under which the stevedoring services have been added.
"The renewal of the Gorgon contract underscores Agility's reputation for efficient, effective and highly dependable performance on complex logistics assignments,” said Mick Turnbull, Agility's Australasia CEO. "The additional services and extension of our contract is a testimony to the hard work and commitment that our team has shown. We are committed to working safely even in the most challenging environments, and look forward to continuing our successful partnership for some time to come.”
Agility has appointed Patrick Stevedoring Pty Ltd, part of Australia's publically-listed Asciano Ltd, as the prime subcontractor for the stevedoring services.
“We are pleased to be working with Agility on these additional services to offer support to the Marine Loading Facility in Perth and are confident that we can play an important part in this project,” said Philip Tonks, Patrick Stevedoring Division General Manager.
Bill Muir, Agility's project manager for the Gorgon Project added, “The combination of Patrick Stevedoring's specialized expertise with Agility's in-depth knowledge and experience of large projects in remote and challenging environments will provide our customer with strong – and personalized – service."
The extended term of the contract (including the new stevedoring services) has now commenced and runs through April 28, 2014.
