John Holland wins $150m Curtis Island LNG work off QLD

24/03/2011 - John Holland says it has been awarded a $150 million subcontract to build marine offloading facilities for the proposed Curtis Island liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility off Queensland.

The construction work would form part of the Gladstone LNG (GLNG) project, the engineering firm said in a statement on Wednesday.

Under the subcontract, John Holland will design and construct a new ferry berth, a roll on/roll off berth, load on/load off berth and a bulk aggregate unloading berth to be delivered for contractor Bechtel Australia Pty Ltd.

Included in the contract scope are the engineering, design, procurement, supply, fabrication, transportation, erection and installation works necessary to complete the new marine facilities.

"The marine offloading facilities are an integral part of the GLNG project," said Brendan Petersen, John Holland's executive general manager of energy and resources businesses.

"The timely completion of this facility is critical to the overall success of the GLNG project."

Construction of the new marine facilities would start immediately, with completion expected in 2012, the company said.

John Holland is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Leighton Holdings Ltd.
