GE Awarded US$620 Million Services Contract In Australia For QGC

In announcing the contract, BG Group Chief Executive Chris Finlayson said, “As construction of the QCLNG Project passes the half-way mark we are increasing our focus on how we are going to operate the facilities safely and efficiently in the decades ahead. BG Group is committed to reducing emissions through advanced, proven technologies and design.”

“Using GE’s technology will contribute to the QCLNG plant being one of the most emissions-efficient facilities of its kind in the world. Liquefied natural gas has an important role to play in the management of global greenhouse gas emissions. When used as a substitute for coal, particularly in developing economies, liquefied natural gas from the QCLNG Project could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 35 percent,” Mr Finlayson said.

The QCLNG project will be supported by GE resources in the Asia Pacific region and worldwide. Maintenance activities on the power turbines and compressors will take place at GE Oil & Gas facilities in Jandakot, Western Australia and in Florence, Italy. Monitoring and diagnostics will be provided from GE Oil & Gas’ global iCenters, located in Florence, Houston and Kuala Lumpur. These centers house teams that constantly track and advise on the performance of installed equipment, enabling customers to optimize plant availability and life cycle of parts.

This ability to ‘predict-and-prevent’ service and maintenance issues through the industrial internet—a connected network of technology, data and experts—is a core part of GE’s strategy to deliver the most advanced service solutions to its customers.

QGC is part of the international BG Group that was formed in 1996. The Queensland Curtis LNG project draws upon QGC’s extensive coal seam expertise and BG Group’s international experience in LNG, at a time of rising global demand for cleaner, more efficient energy. LNG also helps to address climate change by allowing natural gas, which has the lowest carbon emissions of all fossil fuels, to be transported economically around the world.
