Clough AMEC wins $70m Arrow contract

Engineering and project services firm Clough says its AMEC joint venture has been awarded a $70 million contract for Arrow Energy’s Bowen gas project in Queensland.

The contract is for front end engineering to support Arrow’s plans to develop and commercialise gas reserves at the Bowen basin.

The project involves an expansion of Arrow’s existing coal seam gas production in the basin, which will allow it to supply gas to the domestic market for the production and export of liquefied natural gas.

Clough said work under the contract would begin in early October and could take up to 12 months to complete.

“This contract will extend our presence across the Queensland coal seam gas sector and support the planned growth in our engineering division, while providing an excellent opportunity to showcase the benefits of value-focused Australian engineering,” Clough chief executive officer Kevin Gallagher said.

“We will work closely with Arrow Energy and our long-term strategic partner AMEC, to establish strong foundations for the successful delivery of the development in the longer term.”

Clough said the contract would provide new employment opportunities for local engineers and technicians.

Last week, Clough announced it had bought Scotland-based engineering company Booth Welsh for $16 million.

The acquisition followed Clough’s establishment of an engineering centre in Glasgow earlier in the year.
