WorleyParsons provides full pit to port development services spanning preliminary concept, feasibility definition, project delivery and transition to operation.

The Industry
Pit to port developments involve a myriad of technical and nontechnical challenges, particularly in establishing both the feasibility and bankability of candidate options.

Requisite financing and approvals can only be obtained for soundly engineered concept solutions.

Expansive worksites require innovative resource and logistics planning, and consideration of key yard equipment sourcing is needed to minimize lead-times that can impact schedule outcomes and time to market for commodity sales

Our Services
WorleyParsons responds to these challenges by deploying our project advisory and engineering consultants to analyse a range of feasible project solutions, and select for development that offering optimum value.

We apply our core engineering expertise in commodity processing, materials handling, transport and ports to define and onward detail the concept. By further augmenting these with project enabling capabilities including master planning, approvals management and construction logistics planning we provide the foundation for unrivalled delivery assurance.

The pit to port specialists within the WorleyParsons group have extensive experience in:

  • Sound engineering concepts
  • Logistic chain optimisation modelling
  • Route selection
  • Comparative whole of lifecycle cost analysis
  • Global estimating database
  • Regulatory risk assessment
  • Integrated approvals planning
  • Execution planning
  • Global supply chain
  • Construction logistics
  • Sustaining capital projects
  • Project portfolio management

WorleyParsons executes pit to port projects normally as the Project Management Contractor (PMC) or alternatively through the provision of full Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM) services, often forming an integrated project management office with our customers.

Once the assets are delivered and operational, WorleyParsons provides a core service offering focused on maintenance and efficiency improvements, including the further delivery of major facility upgrade projects.
