ConocoPhillips has awarded Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. a multi-year engineering services agreement to support the sustaining capital programme for the Australia Pacific LNG (APLNG) facility after its completion.
The LNG facility, located on Curtis Island in Queensland, Australia, consists of two LNG trains, each capable of producing 4.5 million tpy of LNG.
First LNG is expected from Train 1 in mid-2015, with Train 2 startup expected approximately 6 - 9 months later.
The footprint of the LNG plant is designed to accommodate future growth, with the potential to house up to four LNG trains. ConocoPhillips operates the facility on behalf of Australia Pacific LNG.
Jacobs’ scope of work includes engineering studies, Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) services, and detail design including procurement, commissioning and construction support for sustaining capital and mid-cap projects at the facility over a period of four years. The agreement has the option to extend for a further four years.
Jacobs Group Vice President, Phil Lory, said: “We are very pleased to continue our strong relationship with ConocoPhillips and deliver this landmark programme in Australia. This sustaining capital agreement supports our client focused, long-term project programme strategy in Australia, and we look forward to leveraging our global capability to support ConocoPhillips and the Australia Pacific LNG team in their goal to maintain a safe, efficient LNG facility.”
