LNG project to provide 5000 jobs

SANTOS yesterday announced the appointment of an Australian company as the preferred contractor to carry out engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the upstream facilities component of the Gladstone Liquefied Natural Gas project (GLNG).

The Gladstone LNG project involves converting coal seam gas to LNG, and Santos says it is expected to create 5000 jobs during construction and sustain more than 1000 jobs during operation.

Analysts have estimated the project will cost $9 billion.

Fluor Australia is a publicly owned engineering, procurement, construction, maintenance, and project management company.

Fluor has operations in Melbourne, Perth, and Brisbane that deliver mining, oil and gas, infrastructure and operations and maintenance projects across Australia and also around the world.

Santos owns a 60 per cent stake and Malaysian energy giant Petronas controls the remaining 40 per cent.

Santos anticipates awarding an EPC contract subject to a final investment decision due mid-year.

Santos will extend Fluor’s engineering design contract to include early works activities of approximately A$50 million.
