Mereenie Civil Package

Project Overview

Construction of drill site leases and road network upgrade at Santos Mereenie Oil & Gas Fields.

In an unprecedented decision, Intract secured the civil works package for the $100 million Mereenie Oil and Gas Fields project.

A team of nine, along with four local Aboriginal men also employed by Intract, mobilised to the remote site located in the Amadeus Basin, approximately 300 kilometres south-west of Alice Springs.

Intract was contracted to construct eight lease pads for new drill rigs and upgrade approximately 40 kilometres of roads for better access to the site.

For Santos, the project was not just about capital and energy growth, it was also about giving Aboriginal people a stakehold in the investment and improving Indigenous communities.

Working on site since March Intract has become a true inspiration. The project team was proud to be working on the land, gaining tickets to operate heavy equipment, earning money to support their families, and ultimately encouraging the younger generations to follow in their footsteps.

Investing in over $6 million of plant and equipment on this project alone, and continuing to form new relationships with key community groups, McMahon Services is firmly committed to the growth of Intract.

The vision for Intract has well and truly come to life. Stemming from a long history of working with Aboriginal communities, McMahon Services was determined to create real opportunities that would create real change for Indigenous people. Meaningful employment was the ultimate goal. Intract has not only achieved this through the development of a steady labour force, but has also extended opportunities to local Aboriginal people in communities where they work.
