SINGAPORE (July 22): CIMIC announced on Wednesday that UGL, a CIMIC Group engineering company, secured $180 million in contracts and extensions for maintenance and turnaround services in Australia, specifically Queensland, Western Australia and Victoria.

Many of these contracts are multi-year extensions of UGL’s pre-existing contracts such as providing maintenance, projects and shutdown services for GLNG Operations Pty Ltd for the Queensland Curtis Island facility, which is a liquefaction plant that provides natural gas. 

A new contract that UGL acquired, however, is in Queensland, and includes brownfield projects and operational services in the oil and gas sector. 

All these contracts are effective from the first half of 2020, and they all are in the oil/gas sector, which is UGL’s niche.

CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer Juan Santamaria has said that “UGL has a strong reputation for maintenance and shutdown services, particularly in the Australian oil and gas sector”, and that he is “pleased to have the opportunity to continue developing strong partnerships with [their] clients…”

Similarly, UGL Managing Director Jason Spears has said: “These contract extensions are evidence of our strong relationships with our clients and we look forward to continuing to provide them with a safe and reliable service.”
