“INPEX will also have access to our data-driven solutions and innovations as we leverage the capabilities of our global Centre of Excellence for Resources and our position as part of the Ferrovial group, one of the world’s largest services companies.”
The TRACE contract will create 160 new jobs in the Northern Territory.
