Great Lakes Announces Participation In Dredging Subcontract For Wheatstone LNG Project In Western Australia

Great Lakes will mobilize its backhoe dredge, New York, two 5,000 cubic yard material barges, tug boats and ancillary support equipment to Western Australia to assist in the excavation of clay and rock to create the access to the Wheatstone material offloading facility and the approach channel. The Great Lakes portion of the project is expected to take about 27 months to complete.

David Simonelli, President of Dredging Operations, said “Great Lakes is pleased to be participating in the Wheatstone Project with our dredge New York which is ideally suited to perform in this environment. DEME and Great Lakes have a long history of joint venture and sub-contract cooperation, and we look forward to partnering with Chevron and Bechtel to successfully complete the Wheatstone Project. Our dredge New York will enjoy solid utilization for more than two years. We expect to commence mobilization to the Wheatstone Project in the third quarter of 2012, following the completion of our other contract obligations for the dredge New York.”
