PERTH ( – ASX-listed Decmil Group has been awarded an A$84-million bulk earthworks contract from privately held Perdaman at its Karratha urea project, in Western Australia.

The scope of works under the contract encompasses bulk earthworks on site including drilling and blasting, construction of a causeway, the supply and installation of culverts, establishing portable water lines, and general site clearing activities.

“We are delighted to have been awarded this package of works by the Saipem Clough joint venture, which falls right in our project value sweet spot of between A$50-million and A$150-million, enabling us to maximise supply chain benefits and achieve economies of scale,” said Decmil CEO Rod Heale.

“Pleasingly, our order book is growing strongly whilst adhering to our highly selective tender strategy centred on high-quality larger-sized contracts.

“The capital raising we undertook gives Decmil the financial strength to efficiently deliver on our expanded order book and positions us very well to target further contract awards across Western Australia, Victoria and Queensland.”

The A$6-billion Karratha urea project will create 2 500 jobs during construction and 200 operational jobs, and will convert Western Australian natural gas from Woodside's Scarborough gas project into an estimated 2.3-million tonnes a year of urea, which is a widely used form of fertiliser for food production.
