Transfield Services Clough JV awarded A$80m CSG LNG contract

Transfield Services, together with 50/50 joint venture partner Clough Limited, has been awarded a construction contract as part of QGC Pty Limited’s Queensland Curtis Liquefied Natural Gas (QCLNG) Project. Stage one work, worth an estimated $80 million, commences in October 2012 and includes early site civil works and front end planning work for the construction phase of compression facilities in central Queensland.

On completion of this phase, and subject to mutual agreement between the JV and QGC, the contract could extend to the construction and fabrication of eight field compression stations and two central processing plants. This second phase is expected to commence in early 2013 and complete in mid‐2014.

“We are delighted to be involved in this landmark oil and gas project which complements the Company’s broadly diversified offering across other service sectors,” commented Transfield Services interim Managing Director and CEO, Graeme Hunt.

“The contract also reflects our strategic decision to target CSG LNG and positions us well to take advantage of more opportunities as the industry grows. We look forward to working collaboratively with our highly experienced construction partner Clough and QGC to successfully deliver the project.”

QCLNG will be one of the world’s first projects to convert coal seam gas (CSG) into LNG. It involves expanding QGC's existing coal seam gas production in the Surat Basin of southern Queensland, building a 540km natural gas pipeline network and constructing a natural gas liquefaction plant on Curtis Island, near Gladstone, where the gas will be converted to LNG for export.
