Energy and infrastructure service company WSG Energy Services (WSG) has consolidated its position in Australia’s energy and infrastructure sectors with a host of contract wins and the opening of a new facility in Sydney, New South Wales (NSW), as stated in a press release published earlier this month.

The construction, pre-commissioning, maintenance and shutdown specialist is working across road tunnel projects, coal seam gas (CSG), liquefied natural gas (LNG) and offshore shutdowns, and on the pre-commissioning of waste-to-energy and lithium processing plants.

Headquartered in Perth, Western Australia, the company recently opened a new office in Sydney to support a $A28-million project to procure, install, test and commission the fire suppression systems on two motorway tunnels in NSW.

WSG has also been awarded all flushing and testing pre-commissioning of piping systems for a refinery in Perth, which is under construction and will produce lithium hydroxide for the worldwide manufacture of lithium batteries.

Meanwhile, the firm is to perform flushing and hydrotesting of all pipework at a new-build Perth waste-to-energy facility and it is gearing up to support a major LNG shutdown in Darwin, Northern Territory.

The contract awards follow a previous tranche of contract awards in early 2023 when WSG secured strategic work scopes across oil and gas and infrastructure sectors valued at $A60-million.

WSG Australia MD Andrew Manning said the outlook for the business was positive with a strong pipeline of projects on the horizon over the next two years. Future plans include the opening of a new facility in Queensland in 2024 to support the CSG and LNG sector.

“We’ve chalked up a record 2023 performance and our earlier exposure to major rail and infrastructure projects in NSW has paved the way for winning other large work scopes, such as the tunnel fire suppression project,” he said.

“Our versatility and interchangeable skills set means we can continue to compete for contracts in our traditional oil and gas market, but we are gaining momentum for being able to provide a suite of services for large-scale infrastructure projects.”

Additionally, it has a core workforce of between 150 and 160 staff, which can expand to 220 depending on project demands, and is well positioned to continue to invest in its equipment asset base across key Australian locations.

“Our primary aim is to recruit staff locally and to provide the training and career opportunities which encourage long-term relationships . . . The outlook over the next two years is very encouraging and our ambition is to further cement our reputation for being able to fulfil large-scale contracts with the emphasis on safety and competitiveness,” Manning concludes.
