Project 3 aims to create the next generation of our Improve business line in order to meet the changing needs of our customers. In particular, our customers are seeking a more integrated service where we bring the combination of white and blue collar resources to support their operating assets


Our strategy focuses on key resource regions or basins where we can establish relationships with the local supply chain to deliver a wide range of services from maintenance through to construction. This basin by basin approach has served us well in the past as we have grown from the North-West shelf in Australian and Taranaki basin in New Zealand to the Athabasca oil sands in Alberta and the North Slope in Alaska. This project aims to both diversify the range of services we offer in our home basins as well as following our global customers into new regions. 

We have enjoyed long term success when we invest in developing deep domain knowledge in specific markets. Two such examples in Australia are in Power generation and LNG production. From our Transfield Worley Power Services Joint Venture we operate and maintain a significant proportion of Australia’s Power generation. Similarly we are present in Australia’s three LNG producing basins with a two decade long heritage in this industry. We seek to duplicate this domain knowledge led strategy into other growth subsectors across the globe. The Australian chapter of this strategy is focused on the iron ore, unconventional oil and gas and water subsectors.
