The engineering and design of these projects should not be sent overseas. Australian engineers and designers are more than capable of doing the work here. Large scale projects are being sent elsewhere as a matter of course and in these still uncertain times engineering projects need to be kept within Australia. The last major LNG project done here in Perth was Train 4. Train 5 was engineered in the UK using train 4 as a blue print, as was Pluto which is largely based on T5. Gorgon is already being engineered and designed in the US and UK. A US company was awarded the Wheatstone FEED contract and it is being done in the US. Come on, lets get behind Australian engineering and specify if the project is to be built here then it should be engineered here as they do in the US and Canada. It's not just limited to LNG either, BHP are using a US based company to engineer their RGP 5 project and are sending large chunks of the work to Chile. Fellow designers I speak to those that are sick of hearing of another project going overseas.
