Bechtel wins award for use of technology

BECHTEL'S use of the latest survey technology for its Santos GLNG project has gained international recognition, winning the Contributing to Shaping Change award at the HxGN Live conference in Las Vegas.

Bechtel's survey team working on the GLNG project were tasked with the job of positioning pre-fabricated modules - some weighing up to 2500 tonnes, 44m long and 31m wide - to within a 1mm variance.

They were able to achieve this without using elevated platforms or other assistance, enabling improved safety and efficiency in completing the work.

Bechtel LNG general manager Alasdair Cathcart said the projects on Curtis Island were using many new and innovative ways to perform the work more safely and more efficiently.

"Bechtel prides itself on developing and implementing innovation in safety and performance and this award is great recognition of that," he said.

"Bechtel has achieved distinction in many fields and our approach to continual improvement allows our teams to push the boundaries of innovation."

The use of the survey technology has enabled the project to confidently install and connect the modules as they are placed into position within the plant.

A total of 111 modules will be installed to make up the two-train LNG Plant that Bechtel is constructing for Santos.
