Jacobs Bags Engineering Contract from ConocoPhillips for APLNG Facility
Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. disclosed Tuesday that it was awarded a multi-year engineering services agreement by ConocoPhillips to support the sustaining capital program for the Australia Pacific LNG facility after its completion. The facility is located on Curtis Island in Queensland, Australia.
The facility consists of two liquefied natural gas (LNG) trains, each capable of producing 4.5 million tons per annum (Mtpa) of LNG. First LNG is expected from Train 1 in mid-2015, with Train 2 startup expected approximately 6 to 9 months later. The footprint of the Curtis Island 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.
Company officials did not disclose the contract value.
In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Phil Lory said, “We are very pleased to continue our strong relationship with ConocoPhillips and deliver this landmark program in Australia. This sustaining capital agreement supports our client focused, long term project program 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.”
