KBR has been selected by to execute engineering design services for three coal seam gas (CSG) pipelines designed to carry CSG from gasfields in central Queensland, Australia to an export facility on Curtis Island.
KBR will execute engineering design services including pipeline design, process, civil and structural, mechanical and electrical engineering and instrument controls for the three CSG pipelines. For Curtis LNG, KBR will design a pipeline from central Queensland to the coast that consists of more than 580 km (360 miles) of pipelines, including: a 42 in. diameter coal seam gas pipeline (approximately 374 kilometers/232 miles); a 42 in. diameter CSG collection header pipeline (approx 169 km/105 miles); and six collection laterals of 12 - 24 in. diameter (5.4 km/3.4 miles).
A second pipeline for QCLNG and a third pipeline for APLNG will both consist of a 42 in. diameter high pressure transmission pipeline from the main line valve on the Queensland mainland, across the Narrows to the Curtis Island delivery station. The shared design for the Narrows pipelines is the result of an agreement between QCLNG and APLNG to jointly contract to design build and deliver the two coastal pipelines.
The Queensland Curtis LNG project will consist of two LNG trains with a liquefaction capacity of 8.5 million tpa and will be the world’s first LNG plant to be supplied by coal seam gas.
