VALMEC Limited has been awarded a contract with DBP Development Group (DDG) to deliver construction services on its Tubridgi gas storage facility project in Western Australia’s north-west.

The scope of work on the project includes multi-disciplinary field execution services with an initial estimated value of $5.4 million and is to commence immediately.

Together with other recent gas and infrastructure contract awards within Western Australia and Queensland, Valmec’s current Order Book now exceeds $55 million.

With this current work in hand and increased tendering activities providing greater visibility of revenues for FY17 and into FY18, Valmec expects total FY17 revenues in the range of $65 million to $69 million skewed to the second half, an increase of 30%  to 38% to FY16.

“We are delighted to have received this contract on this strategic Western Australian project and are looking forward to continuing our strong working relationship with the DDG team” VALMEC managing director Steve Dropulich said.

“Increasing revenues for the Group are a result of working closely with our clients during difficult market conditions and reflect an improvement within our core sectors, with the cautious recovery of oil, gas and resource markets providing new and existing clients with an improved outlook for their own development projects,” Mr Dropulich said.
