CJV, a joint venture comprising of Chiyoda, as JV leader, CB&I and Saipem S.p.A., has been awarded the FEED contract for the Arrow LNG plant project.
Arrow Energy Pty Ltd., the project operator, is a 50/50 joint venture owned by Royal Dutch Shell PLC and PetroChina.
The project, which will be designed with a production capacity of 8 million tpa is planned to be constructed on Curtis Island, off the coast of Gladstone, on the east coast of Queensland, Australia. The project has the potential to expand its capacity up to 16 million tpa in the future. The LNG plant will be supplied with Coal Seam Gas (CSG) from the Surat and Bowen Basins in Queensland and will process, treat and liquefy the gas for export.
CSG (also known as Coal Bed Methane) is a naturally occurring gas formed as a by-product of the coal formation process. CSG is typically 95 - 98% methane with a small amount of nitrogen and, in some instances, contains carbon dioxide.
