Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces that its subsidiary Yokogawa Engineering Asia Pte. Ltd. has been awarded a contract by CJV, a joint venture comprised of Chiyoda Corporation as JV leader, CB&I, and Saipem S.p.A., to perform the front end engineering design (FEED) for an integrated control and safety system that is to be provided to Arrow Energy for the Arrow LNG Project. For this project, Yokogawa Engineering Asia has been selected as the main automation contractor (MAC※1) by Arrow Energy.
Arrow Energy, a 50/50 joint venture between Shell and CNPC (PetroChina), is planning the development of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility on Curtis Island, which is directly off the coast from the city of Gladstone in South East Queensland, Australia. The project includes the construction of a liquefaction facility, jetties, and offloading facilities. The LNG plant will receive coal bed methane (CBM) from the Surat and Bowen Basins and will process, treat, and liquefy the gas for export. In phase 1 of this project, two 4 million ton per year LNG trains will be constructed. A decision will be made at some later date whether to proceed with the planned construction of two additional trains of equivalent size.
The FEED work commenced in November 2011. Following completion of this preliminary phase and a decision to go ahead with the project, Yokogawa will proceed to supply its CENTUM VP integrated production control system and the ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system as the MAC. In this role, it will work directly with the project's engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractors.
