Engineering and project services company Clough Limited, today announced that the Clough AMEC joint venture has been awarded a AU$70 million front end engineering design (FEED) contract for Arrow Energy’s proposed Bowen Gas Project in central Queensland.
The contract involves front end engineering to support the next phase of Arrow’s work to develop and commercialise its significant Bowen Basin gas reserves. The FEED scope includes engineering, procurement and contracts award for the early works.
The FEED contract will commence on 6 October 2014 and is expected to continue for up to 12 months. The work will provide employment opportunities for local engineering, technical and professional personnel.
"This important contract will extend our presence across the Queensland Coal Seam Gas sector and support the planned growth in our Engineering division, while providing an excellent opportunity to showcase the benefits of value focused Australian engineering" said Clough’s CEO and Managing Director Kevin Gallagher.
"We will work closely with Arrow Energy and our long term strategic partner AMEC, to establish strong foundations for the successful delivery of the development in the longer term."
Arrow’s Bowen Gas Project involves a major, staged expansion of Arrow's existing domestic coal seam gas (CSG) production in the Bowen Basin, to supply gas to the domestic market and for the production and export of liquefied natural gas (LNG).
