Australia’s Decmil Group has secured a $17 million extension to an existing contract with QGC, the operator of Queensland Curtis LNG project and a unit of energy giant Shell.
The deal is an extension to the existing long-term wellsite installation services contract for QGC, Decmil said in a statement, adding that the contract will last until June 30 next year.
The contract has been awarded to Decmil’s wholly owned subsidiary, Decmil Australia.
Under the deal, Decmil will continue to support QGC’s operations with wellhead construction, logistics, material management and a range of construction services.
QGC was before a unit of BG Group, that was acquired by Hague-based Shell in a $54 billion deal in February.
The Australian company produces natural gas from wells drilled into coal seams in the Surat Basin in the west of the state, and in addition is exploring for gas from coal seams in the Bowen and Cooper Basins.
The gas is being supplied to both domestic customers and to the 8 mtpa LNG plant on Curtis Island.
