Leighton Contractors wins APLNG gig

CIMIC Group’s construction company, Leighton Contractors, has been awarded a contract by Australia Pacific LNG to deliver gas field development works in the Surat Basin, Queensland.

The collaborative well delivery project is expected to generate revenue of approximately $300 million to Leighton Contractors over two years, the company revealed on Tuesday.

Under the contract, which has an additional two-year option, Leighton is expected to deliver approximately 200 wells per annum in a series of work packages.

The CWD project supports APLNG’s ongoing upstream operations and supply to its LNG export facility on Curtis Island, post the construction phase which is largely complete.

Leighton will deliver the project with design partner Amec Foster Wheeler who have been designing upstream linear infrastructure for APLNG for the past four years.

The project’s planning phase for the first project works package is underway and construction works commence in early October 2015.
