Thiess wins AUD 325 million coal contract

Friday, 10 Feb 2012

Leighton Holdings subsidiary Thiess has won a AUD 325 million contract to build a coal seam gas processing plant in southern Queensland.

The contract involves the construction of six field compression stations and one central processing plant in the Surat Basin, which is near Dalby, to service QGC's Queensland Curtis LNG Project.

Coal seam gas mining company QGC is a subsidiary of global gas giant the BG Group.

The facilities will process gas that will be transported through an underground pipeline network to Gladstone where the gas will be liquefied.

Mr Bruce Munro MD at Thiess said that “Thiess has a culture of valuing and building long-term partnerships and we are proud to work with QGC on this project of state significance.”

The company said that work will begin in February 2012 and is expected to be completed in April next year.

Thiess said that at its peak the project will employ about 570 workers.
