GE Oil & Gas has received a $620 million (MM), 22-year contractual service agreement to provide a broad range of advanced technology services for QGC’s Queensland Curtis LNG (QCLNG) plant off the east coast of Australia.

One of Australia’s largest infrastructure projects, the QCLNG plant will be the world’s first facility to turn coalbed methane—or coal seam gas, as it is called in Australia—into liquefied natural gas (LNG).

Coal seam gas is plentiful in Australia and will form the basis for the growing Australian LNG industry. The QGC plant is the first of four LNG projects scheduled for Curtis Island and is expected to begin production in 2014, with the LNG produced primarily targeted for export to China, Japan, Singapore and other countries.

The GE scope of work will include planned and unplanned maintenance of the GE equipment being installed at the QCLNG plant, including 15 PGT25+G4 aeroderivative gas turbines, 28 centrifugal compressors, gearboxes, generators and all auxiliaries.

The agreement also includes monitoring and diagnostic services, as well as reliability guarantees on the equipment.
