AusGroup Ltd. has confirmed that subsidiary AGC Industries has been awarded a significant maintenance master contract by Chevron Australia on March 22.

The contract is the longest maintenance master contract currently in the Australian oil and gas market. 

The ten-year master contract enables Chevron Australia to order full-service asset maintenance from AGC across Chevron’s onshore and offshore natural gas and oil production facilities located in the north-west of Australia.

AGC expects that the contract will see AGC deliver a diverse and complete range of services including management, planning, scheduling and supervision; painting insulation and fireproofing (PIF); scaffolding including engineering services; rope access (central trades); workshop management; asset management (hire equipment special tools); procurement and maintenance; crane operation (rigging) and maintenance. 

“This contract is a substantial achievement for AusGroup and confirms our proven track-record, integrity, ability and financial capacity to deliver certainty of outcome which has been central to our performance over the years,” Shane Kimpton, AusGroup CEO and managing director, said.

AGC confirmed a significant number of new roles would be required to service orders under the contract with recruitment to commence in coming weeks.

Founded in Western Australia in 1989, AGC is an experienced integrated services provider, with an established presence in Western Australia, Victoria and Northern Territory. It provides a range of service solutions from maintenance and construction through to commissioning and handover.
