Full project details
Australia Pacific LNG awarded Laing O’Rourke the $1.4 billion contract to build gas processing plants and associated infrastructure to support its CSG to LNG Project.
The Australia Pacific LNG Gas Processing Facilities project will involve the construction of six new gas processing plants, two permanent accommodation facilities at Condabri Central and Reedy Creek for 130 and 230 operational staff respectively, and support facilities including integrated operations centres, warehouses, workshops and internal roadways.
The gas processing plants at Condabri (x3), Orana, Reedy Creek and Combabula are an integral part of the project, processing the raw natural gas produced from the gas fields ready for delivery to the main transmission pipeline for export to domestic and global markets.
Construction on the three Condabri sites commenced in July 2012, with completion across all sites expected by the end of 2014.
The project will generate considerable flow-on benefits throughout the Queensland economy, creating approximately 6,000 direct jobs during the peak construction phase which includes the gas fields, gas pipeline and LNG facility. It will also create 1,000 jobs during the operation of the project.
The Australia Pacific LNG project is an incorporated joint venture project between Origin, ConocoPhillips and Sinopec that includes development of existing coal seam gas fields in the Surat and Bowen basins and construction of a gas transmission pipeline from the gas fields to an LNG facility to be developed on Curtis Island in Gladstone, where Laing O'Rourke is already providing civil and marine infrastructure packages.
