The contract, which is reportedly worth 70 million Australian dollars, is for Arrow Energy’s proposed Bowen Gas Project in central Queensland.

The project involves a staged expansion of Arrow’s existing domestic coal seam gas (CSG) production in the Bowen Basin, to supply gas to the domestic market and for the production and export of liquefied natural gas (LNG).

“This important contract will extend our presence across the Queensland Coal Seam Gas sector and support the planned growth in our engineering division,” said Clough chief executive and managing director, Kevin Gallagher.

“We will work closely with Arrow Energy and our long term strategic partner AMEC, to establish strong foundations for the successful delivery of the development in the longer term,” Gallagher said.

Clough, a wholly-owned subsidiary of [DATA MUR:Murray & Roberts], also stated that the FEED contract should commence on 6 October 2014 and is expected to continue for up to 12 months.
