Thiess wins gas contract

 Thiess has won a $325 million contract to build gas processing facilities for the Queensland Curtis Island LNG project.

Awarded by coal seam gas company QGC, the contract will see Thiess construct six field compressions stations and one central processing plant approximately 30km north west of Dalby, in Queensland.

These facilities will process gas for transportation via underground pipes to Gladstone, after which it will be converted into LNG for export.

Work will begin this month and will run until April next year, during which it will employ around 570 workers.

According to Thiess, the project will increase its "presence in the upstream coal seam gas sector in the region where it began more than 70 years ago".
