The scope includes the design of Arrow’s two major pipelines which will transport gas from the Bowen and Surat Basins in Queensland.

Arrow chief executive Andrew Faulkner said the pipeline design was an important milestone in the evolution of the Arrow LNG project.

“WorleyParsons was chosen for its understanding of our requirements and its availability to complete the work appropriately,” Faulkner said.

“The pipeline design includes steel pipelines, isolation valve stations and a gas gathering hub in

Gladstone. “

He also played up the award of the contract as a sign that the project was on track, countering gathering pessimism about the Australian LNG sector generally in the face of higher input and labour costs.

“This pipeline design contract is a clear indication that Arrow is on track with its LNG project,” Mr

Faulkner said.

“It will also enable Arrow to issue a construction tender for the gas pipelines early next year.

“We have continued momentum with the project and look forward to submitting a final investment decision on our LNG project to our shareholders around end 2013.”

Arrow is also completing front end engineering design and preparing tenders for the engineering procurement and construction contract on the project.
