Brisbane-based Wood Group Wagners has been awarded the Project Management Services Contract for the GLNG Pipeline Project in Queensland, a development that will process coal seam gas (CSG) into liquefied natural gas (LNG).
Under the terms of this A$40million contract Wood Group Wagners will provide a more than 40 personnel to the GLNG pipeline project management team (PPMT), formed to manage, monitor and supervise the performance of the EPC Contract.
In addition, Wood Group Wagners will utilize its local and global resources to provide senior engineering and design, site construction, human resources and general administration personnel to the GLNG pipeline project management team.
The 420km pipeline is a major component of the overall GLNG development, which will transport CSG from the existing and future fields in the Roma, Fairview and Arcadia Valley areas, to a planned LNG plant on Curtis Island.
"We are delighted to have secured this contract with GLNG, our role in this project confirms our reputation as a value adding partner to major energy projects," said John Stark, General Manager Wood Group Wagners. "This builds on our recent success in securing several major CSG contracts and delivers on our promise to be a single source of solutions across entire project cycles."
Overall construction is due to commence this year with first cargoes scheduled to be exported from 2015.
Wood Group Wagners is a joint venture company established in Brisbane by Wood Group and Wagners to provide Queensland's gas producers with a flexible, fit-for-purpose solution for developing Coal Seam Gas.
