Valmec has secured early works on the first phase of Arrow Energy’s
$10 billion Surat Gas Project.
Valmec’s initial contract with Arrow to deliver critical water treatment facilities is valued at $16 million.
The energy, infrastructure and asset services group said the turnkey project involved procurement, construction and commissioning works at the Daandine facility.
Work on the contract is expected to commence immediately with completion scheduled for FY22.
“The Arrow Energy contract is another great example of Valmec’s cross-capability with our expertise in water infrastructure being applied to one of our established gas energy clients and the nationally significant Surat Gas project,” Valmec managing director Steve Dropulich said.
“Clients have recognised the efficiencies and cost savings associated with engaging early with a specialist contractor such as Valmec that has multi-discipline expertise and prides itself on providing a one-stop solution.”
Arrow Energy in April gave the green light for the first phase of the Surat Gas Project in southern Queensland and is targeting first gas from the project in 2021.
Over the full 27-year life of the Surat Gas Project, Arrow expects to develop around 5 TCF of natural gas.
It is expected to create 200 construction jobs during phase one, with a further 800 construction and operating roles over the life of the project.
Arrow operates five gas fields in the Surat and Bowen basins in southern and central Queensland, supplying coal seam gas commercially from the Bowen Basin since 2004 and from the Surat Basin since 2006.
