Siemens Energy has been awarded a contract to provide long-term maintenance services for the Santos GLNG Project in Queensland, Australia, which is a joint venture between Santos, PETRONAS, Total and KOGAS.
The six-year contract includes preventative maintenance, remote monitoring, parts supply, and field service for 16 SGT-400 industrial gas turbines spread across three Santos GLNG sites – Roma and Fairview 1 & 2.
“The Santos GLNG Project underscores the commitment of Santos GLNG and the Queensland government to advance the progression of this clean energy technology on a global scale and we are pleased to have been selected to provide long-term maintenance at the project,” said Dr. Beatrix Natter, CEO, Service Oil & Gas, Siemens Energy.
The Santos GLNG Project is designed to convert coal seam gas (CSG) to LNG for export to global markets. The Santos GLNG Project includes the development of CSG resources in the Bowen and Surat Basins in southeast Queensland, construction of a 420 km underground gas transmission pipeline from the gas fields to Gladstone, and two LNG trains with a combined nameplate capacity of 7.8 million tpy on Curtis Island. The first LNG exports are expected to commence in 2015.
