Bechtel’s Oil, Gas and Chemicals business unit helps customers worldwide meet demand for clean, efficient energy. As industry leaders in the design and construction of gas development projects, pipelines, and liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities, Bechtel is at the forefront of LNG developments in Australia.
QGC and Bechtel have signed a contract for the Queensland Curtis LNG project, located on Curtis Island near Gladstone. The two-train LNG facility will be owned and operated by QGC.
The GLNG project, a joint venture between Santos, PETRONAS, TOTAL, and Kogas involves design and construction of a single-train LNG facility on Curtis Island, Gladstone, with a second train of the same capacity likely to be contracted soon. The project includes a liquefaction unit, power, water, and other utilities complete with required infrastructure and marine facilities.
Australia Pacific, a joint venture between ConocoPhillips and Origin Energy, is building an LNG plant on Curtis Island, Gladstone. Bechtel is both designing and constructing this facility. Final approval of the project is expected during 2011.
