DECMIL Group’s wholly owned subsidiary Homeground Gladstone will provide accommodation services on Curtis Island as part of an exclusive agreement with ConocoPhillips.

Homeground will provide ConocoPhillips with accommodation for all shutdown workforce requirements, including major plant shutdowns, Decmil said.

Decmil said the agreement will see Homeground transition, in-line with the market, to the operational phase of the major LNG projects in the Gladstone region.

Homeground currently provides shutdown accommodation to Rio Tinto’s Yarwun Bauxite refinery, also located in the region.

Decmil Group managing director Scott Criddle was pleased with the contract win.

“Homeground has developed a strong reputation with the major project operators in the Gladstone region as a temporary workforce accommodation provider of the highest standard.”

“This partnership with ConocoPhillips will see Homeground become an important service provider to Australia Pacific LNG by providing the infrastructure to manage all temporary workforce accommodation requirements”

ConocoPhillips is the downstream operator of the Australia Pacific LNG facility located on Curtis Island, near Gladstone.
