Jacobs Awarded Contract from QGC
Coal Seam Gas Expertise Supports Upstream Activities in Australia
PASADENA, Calif. -- November 26, 2013
Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (NYSE:JEC) announced today it has been awarded a
contract from QGC, part of BG Group plc (LSE: BG.L), a world leader in natural
gas. QGC is one of the major proponents in the rapidly developing coal seam
gas (CSG) to liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry in Australia.
Officials did not disclose the contract value, but noted that the services are
being provided from Jacobs’ Brisbane, Australia and Denver, Colo., U.S.
offices, enabling QGC to leverage the substantial experience that Jacobs has
gained in the U.S. CSG market.
Under the terms of the contract, Jacobs is performing concept study and
pre-FEED (front-end engineering and design) activities to support further
development of the upstream portion of the project. Jacobs’ scope of work
includes the production well pads that produce and separate gas and water; the
gathering systems that transport the produced fluids; and the field compressor
stations that form part of the transport system carrying the produced gas to
the LNG production facilities.
These facilities are designed to connect into the existing infrastructure that
transports the CSG to QGC’s LNG plant located on Curtis Island, near Gladstone
in Queensland. The Queensland Curtis LNG project is anticipated to be the
world's first project to convert CSG into LNG, and to provide cleaner
hydrocarbon energy for export markets from 2014.
Jacobs’ Group Vice President Tom Quinn stated, "We are very pleased to be
working again with QGC, and to be a part of one of Australia's largest capital
infrastructure projects. We look forward to combining our global CSG
experience with our Australian project delivery capability to support QGC in
achieving their strategic objectives for this critical project."
Jacobs is one of the world's largest and most diverse providers of technical,
professional, and construction services.
