SANTOS GLADSTONE LNG PROJECT, Queensland
The following project overview is current for 2012. Our objective is to provide information on projects that are considered to have a strong likelihood of proceeding, where information in the public domain has been updated in the last 12 months and where we deem that the opportunity for jobs is also strong.
Operators: Santos (30.0% - operator), Petronas (27.5%), Total (27.5%), Kogas (15.0%)
Timeframe: FID announced 13 January 2012, with first gas production expected for mid 2015
Employment: The project is expected to employ 5,000 people during construction and 1,000 during operation. At its peak – likely 2013 - it is expected to employ around 3,000 people. In October 2009, Santos announced a plan to generate up to 100 new apprenticeships and trainee positions to help deliver the project. Initial positions will be in the Roma region in the State’s south west, and in Gladstone in Central Queensland. Training will be rolled out over the next five years and includes $16m for 100 new diesel mechanics, electricians and electrical instrument apprentices and traineeships in plant operations, together with a $4m indigenous training package to support a target of 300 indigenous GLNG jobs.
Status: Progress on the project has been steady and substantial, with the downstream front-end engineering and design (FEED) conducted by Bechtel now complete, and the upstream FEED conducted by Foster Wheeler and Fluor also complete.
