The maintenance master contract is the longest of its kind in Australia’s oil and gas market.

Under the terms of the deal, Chevron Australia can order full-service asset maintenance from AusGroup subsidiary AGC Industries across its onshore and offshore oil and gas production facilities in Australia’s northwest.

Services provided are expected to include management, planning, painting insulation and fireproofing, scaffolding including engineering services, rope access, workshop management, procurement and maintenance, and more.

AusGroup CEO and Managing Director Shane Kimpton called the contract a “substantial achievement” for the company.

“Furthermore, this contract represents a significant strategic milestone for our business, firmly positioning us as a leader and Tier 1 contractor in end-to-end asset maintenance program delivery for oil and gas assets,” he said.

“We have heavily invested in our business and our people, ensuring we have the technical know-how and expertise, multidisciplinary maintenance proficiency and capacity to deliver on oil and natural gas asset maintenance scope of this scale.”

The company said it expects to recruit approximately 300-500 new planning and execution staff over the lifetime of the contract.
