Clough has been awarded the infrastructure construction contract for Santos’ GLNG project in the Surat Basin.
It will see the contractor build more than 400 kilometres of gas and water transmission pipelines, and two compression facilities, as well as an 800 person camp.
The contractor will also expand existing compression facilities.
Construction work is scheduled to begin this month, and at the peak of operations employ around 650 people.
“This is a significant project award and represents a breakthrough for our recently established coal seam gas division into the expanding coal seam gas industry,” Clough CEO John Smith said.
GLNG is a project aiming to convert coal seam gas into LNG for export, and is part of Santos’ clean energy drive.
It sources CSG from the Bowen and Surat basins then transports it, via a 420 kilometre underground pipe, to a two-train LNG plant on Curtis Island.
GLNG is a joint venture between Santos, PETRONAS, Total, and KOGAS.
