Saturday, November 19th, 2011 - Strategic Marine
Western Australian company Strategic Marine has staked a claim in the burgeoning Queensland LNG sector, winning two major fabrication contracts with John Holland.

Under the contracts, Strategic Marine will provide design, fabrication and engineering works for John Holland’s material offloading facilities at the Queensland Curtis LNG Project (QCLNG) and the Gladstone LNG Project (GLNG).

The QCLNG and GLNG projects will use world-first technology to process coal seam gas (CSG) into liquefied natural gas (LNG).

Strategic Marine Chairman Mark Newbold said the company’s goal to become a key supplier in the booming Australian resource and energy sectors, both in WA and Queensland was now very much a reality.

"These contracts have enabled us to accelerate plans for establishing a facility in QLD to service the CSG industry, as well as the regional oil and gas industry, including neighbouring countries like Papua New Guinea," Mr Newbold said.

"We have also recently established a new operation in Karratha, in the north west of WA, which will provide clients with rapid response marine services around the clock."

Mr Newbold said Strategic Marine aimed to establish a significant stake in the Fabrication, Engineering and Marine Services sectors through out the Asia Pacific region.

"The board is committed to the diversification of the Strategic Marine Group’s global operations. In fact we are in the final stages of officially launching two new divisions within the organisation, the Marine Service Division and the Fabrication and Engineering Division.

"Each division will provide a number of synergistic benefits to the group, complementing and building on the success of our global ship building division."

Having recently delivered tug pen pontoons to Woodside as part of the Pluto LNG project, Strategic Marine is fast establishing itself as an attractive solution to the Australian resources and energy sectors.

"We appreciate our clients’ objectives for sustainable business outcomes, whether it is reducing construction costs or the maximisation of local content. By providing clients with economic fabrication and engineering services, as well as local support and maintenance services, we are able to ensure all their maritime needs are met."

Strategic Marine celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, growing from a Geraldton-based crayfishing boat builder to a multi-million dollar Australian marine vessels manufacturer with global operations spanning four countries.

During this time the company has consistently delivered cost effective projects from its offshore shipyards, while maintaining high levels of Australian input and content management expertise.

"We are very excited by our progress to date and we anticipate further growth in the regional market as more and more gas and infrastructure projects in WA and QLD come online," Mr Newbold said.
