    Clough AMEC is pleased to announce that it has received the ConocoPhillips 2016 Supplier Recognition Award for 'Doing Business Better.'


    ConocoPhillips’ Australia West business unit, nominated Clough AMEC and it was chosen as a winner by a global cross-functional committee, that included senior management from the company.


    The award recognises the work undertaken by Clough AMEC following the commencement of the Bayu Undan operations and maintenance contract in January 2016. Clough AMEC restructured the labour contracts, rationalised labour agencies and reviewed direct employment of personnel that resulted in significant operational efficiencies and savings. Clough AMEC also enhanced the training and development of local Timorese workers, improving productivity and increasing the overall percentage of Timorese personnel in the workforce.


    The contract with ConocoPhillips involves asset support, operations and maintenance services to the Bayu Undan development. The Bayu Undan offshore facilities consist of a floating storage and offloading facility and three fixed platforms; a remote wellhead platform; a compression, utilities and quarters platform; and a drilling, production and processing platform.


    Nigel Hudson, Clough AMEC Director, said:


    “I am delighted that the Clough AMEC team has been recognised by ConocoPhillips for ‘Doing Business Better.' Our team at Bayu Undan has a dedicated development plan for Timor Leste personnel, which forms a significant part of our daily operational activities. Enhancing the training and development of Timorese people demonstrates our commitment to the local workforce as well as working collaboratively with ConocoPhillips and other contractors."

    Al Hirshberg, ConocoPhillips Executive Vice President, Production, Drilling & Project said:
