Transfield Services wins more work with QGC

Transfield Services has further strengthened its foothold in Queensland’s coal seam gas (CSG) market, agreeing to further work with QGC Pty Limited as part of its Queensland Curtis Liquefied Natural Gas (QCLNG) Project.

The new work includes the construction, installation and completion of a series of CSG well sites in central Queensland. The work is expected to be worth up to A$20 million and commences in December 2012. It is expected to be completed in June 2013.

On completion of this phase of work and subject to a further agreement with QGC, Transfield Services has the potential to install additional well sites beyond June 2013.

The project to construct, install and complete up to 208 well heads is part of Transfield Services’ framework agreement with QGC. The agreement runs until November 2015 and incorporates Transfield Services’ existing 191 wellhead inspection project.

This framework agreement is in addition to two other recent contract awards with QGC.

In November this year, Transfield Services was awarded a five year A$200 million contract to provide maintenance and operations services at QCLNG’s upstream assets.

In October, Transfield Services, together with 50/50 joint venture partner Clough Limited, was awarded an $80 million QCLNG civil works and front end planning contract for the construction phase of compression facilities. The contract could be extended to include the construction and fabrication of eight field compression stations and two central processing plants.
“We are working in partnership with QGC to deliver this extensive scope of work safely and efficiently,” said Joe Sofra, Transfield Services Chief Executive, Resources and Energy. “QCLNG is a landmark CSG project and it is terrific to be so heavily involved.”

QCLNG will be one of the world’s first projects to convert 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.
