Queensland LNG projects in Australia

Honeywell systems for Bechtel Australian LNG project (23 Nov 2011)

Honeywell has been selected by Bechtel International to design and implement automation and safety solutions for a new multi-train liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility under construction as part of the Australia Pacific LNG Project in Queensland.
The Australia Pacific LNG Project — a joint venture between Origin Energy, ConocoPhillips and Sinopec — will create a long-term industry utilising Australia Pacific LNG’s coal seam gas (CSG) resources in the Surat and Bowen basins. Bechtel selected Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) to provide vital Integrated Control and Safety Systems (ICSS) at the new facility, which is designed to convert CSG to LNG. The Project will produce coal steam gas for commercial markets both locally and overseas and already supplies gas to power stations in Queensland, major industrial customers and homes and businesses in south east Queensland.
The solution consists of components including Experion PKS, Honeywell’s award-wining process distributed control system that unifies people with process, Safety Manager, which delivers enhanced safety assurance for operators who oversee industrial processes, and also includes Honeywell’s Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS), their Fire & Gas Systems (FGS), and Enterprise Building Integrator, which serves as a platform for both fire detection systems and security systems, integrating seamlessly with Experion PKS to provide operators with total situational awareness.
“Honeywell solutions will provide Australia Pacific LNG with a safe and reliable system from day one” said Frank Whitsura, vice president-HPS Projects and Automation Solutions: “We design our systems to integrate seamlessly with other Honeywell and third party products and solutions. This increases efficiency and reduces risk on a project so that it is completed on time and on-budget, which is the best possible outcome for all”.

Yokogawa starts FEED project for Arrow LNG (8 January 2012)

On the East Coast of Australia, the Arrow LNG project team, in a 50/50 JV between Shell and CNPC (PetroChina), is planning the development of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility on Curtis Island, which is directly off the coast from the city of Gladstone in Southeast Queensland. The LNG plant will receive coal-bed methane (CBM) from the Surat and Bowen basins and will process, treat, and liquefy the gas for export. In phase 1 of this project, two 4 million ton per year LNG trains will be constructed. Yokogawa Engineering Asia has been selected as the main automation contractor (MAC) for this project by Arrow Energy, and the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor, which is a JV between Chiyoda, CB&I and Saipem, led by Chiyoda.

Yokogawa commenced work on the FEED in November 2011. Following completion of this preliminary phase and a decision to go ahead with the project, Yokogawa will proceed to supply its Centum VP integrated production control system and the ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system, as the MAC.

Encouraged by this new order, Yokogawa will make every possible effort to expand its global LNG business, especially in Australia and countries in Southeast Asia, where many LNG projects are underway.
