Patrick, part of the Asciano group of companies, has reached an agreement to acquire Apache Energy’s Dampier Floating Deck (DFD) platform currently being constructed at the Port of Dampier in Australia. The DFD is designed to service oil and gas support vessel operations and, on completion, will provide an additional two berths and a range of on-berth vessel provisioning / support services not currently available in Dampier.
Murray Vitlich, Director of Patrick Bulk and Automotive Port Services, stated that the acquisition will expand Patrick’s existing oil and gas services capabilities in the Pilbara region.
“The Port of Dampier is well positioned to provide ongoing services to vessels supporting oil and gas projects as they transition from construction to operations over the coming years. This platform will strengthen our existing regional port operations servicing the oil and gas sector in the Northern Territory and Western Australia.”
Patrick will operate the DFD as an open access facility, with Apache Energy taking up a position as a foundation customer. The DFD project is due to be completed in March 2015.
