QGC has awarded an Australian construction company a contract to deliver gas infrastructure in the Surat Basin, Queensland.
Leighton Contractors was awarded the contract and they expect the project to generate revenue of approximately $250 million over 18 months.
Leighton Contractors Managing Director, Román Garrido, said: “Our integrated project management, engineering and construction capabilities provide clients with a single interface for all civil, structural, mechanical, piping, instrumentation and electrical work for delivering oil and gas facilities.
“We are pleased to continue our valued partnership with QGC and look forward to building on relationships formed with local subcontractors and suppliers.”
CIMIC Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Marcelino Fernández Verdes, said: “QGC’s ongoing development of its world class natural gas reserves is making a major contribution to the Queensland economy and growth of the LNG industry in Australia.
“CIMIC Group and Leighton Contractors bring significant international and Australian experience to the delivery of large scale oil and gas facilities.”
