Toowoomba-based company FKG Group has commenced civil works on the Project Atlas gas processing facility near Wandoan in the Surat Basin.
Senex Energy partnered with major infrastructure provider Jemena in June last year to build the processing facility, with gas expected to flow to the domestic market by late this year.
Jemena has awarded the construction contract for the facility to Australian-owned energy services group Valmec, with the civil works component sub-contracted to FKG Group.
FKG Group has a 40-year track record of delivering construction and engineering services.
Senex managing director and chief executive officer, Ian Davies, said the company was pleased that a local supplier would benefit from Senex’s significant investments across the Surat Basin.
“Senex is directly investing around $250 million and supporting a further $140 million of investment via the Jemena contract across its Surat Basin natural gas projects,” Mr Davies said.
“Senex is focused to ensure these investments support local jobs and benefit local businesses and communities.”
