Roxtec to supply Australia’s biggest gas project

Roxtec supplies cable and pipe seals to the Gorgon LNG Project on Barrow Island, Western Australia. The project is one of the world's largest natural gas developments and the largest single-resource project in Australia's history. It is operated by Chevron and is a joint venture of the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron, ExxonMobil, Shell, Osaka Gas, Tokyo Gas and Chubu Electric Power. 

Roxtec’s global operation played a key role in winning the contract. 

“This is a prestigious project for us to work on and it demonstrates our expertise in the oil and gas sector,” says Graham O’Hare, Managing Director of Roxtec UK. “Our presence across the world enables us to service an international project like this efficiently and effectively. We supply seals with an in-built EMC system to protect the plant’s electrical systems. The seals in the modular instrumentation buildings will help ensure the safe operations of control systems.” 

Roxtec also supplies Ex rated seals for use in hazardous areas as well as cable and pipe penetrations for the walls and floors in the substations and switch rooms.
