ExxonMobil: Construction of Longford Gas Conditioning Plant Starts

Esso Australia, a part of the ExxonMobil Australia group of companies, today announced the start of construction on the new Longford Gas Conditioning Plant at a ground breaking event with The Hon Peter Ryan MLA, Deputy Premier and Scott Rossetti, Mayor of Wellington Shire Council.

 

The plant will process gas from the Kipper Tuna Turrum Project, Australia’s largest domestic gas development located on the eastern seaboard.

“The Gas Conditioning Plant project is part of Esso and BHP Billiton’s significant investment program in natural gas projects in Gippsland,” said Richard Owen, Chairman of ExxonMobil Australia. “Once the plant is operational in 2016, we will deliver 1.6 trillion cubic feet of gas to the East Australia market, helping replace declining production from existing fields.”

The Gas Conditioning Plant is a major project for Gippsland and is expected to create around 250 direct construction jobs as well as other indirect employment opportunities.

“Our plans for Longford make this an exciting time for Gippsland and Victoria,” Owen said. “The construction of the plant requires the effort of many hundreds of people working closely together to ensure the project is developed in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.”

CB&I Constructors Pty Ltd have been awarded the engineering, procurement and construction contract for the plant and will manage the construction site.

The Gas Conditioning Plant is being built adjacent to Esso’s existing Longford facilities near Sale. Initial activity at the site will include the establishment of basic infrastructure including administration buildings, training facilities, roads and parking to accommodate the construction workforce. Warehousing and laydown areas adjacent to the new plant will also be established to temporarily store materials and equipment prior to being installed.
