Worley clinches APLNG gig

Australian engineering firm Worley has won a contract from compatriot Origin Energy, the upstream operator of the Australia Pacific LNG (APLNG) project.

Worley said in a statement that the front end engineering and design (FEED) contract is for a new natural gas compression facility in Queensland, Australia.

The Angry Jungle gas field is a joint venture gas field run by multiple producers within the Surat Basin.

During the FEED phase, Worley will support the engineering design of the infrastructure needed to allow APLNG to capitalize on its share of coal seam gas produced within the Angry Jungle gas field, it said.

The overall project infrastructure includes an in-field compression facility, low pressure gathering pipeline, and ancillary services.

Worley has been engaged to deliver an initial scope focused on the booster compression facility.

The company did not provide the price tag of the contract.


The APLNG project logged lower revenue during the quarter ending March 31 compared to the same quarter last year, Origin said in April.

APLNG revenue reached about A$2.55 billion ($1.69 billion) in the January-March period.

Origin said that APLNG sold 34 LNG cargoes during January-March, up from 33 cargoes in the same quarter in 2023 and a rise compared to 32 cargoes in the prior quarter.

During the period from July 2023 to March 2024, APLNG sold 97 cargoes, two more cargoes compared to the same period before.

The company owns a 22.5 percent in the projec, while China’s Sinopec owns a 25 percent share in APLNG.

US energy giant ConocoPhillips has a 47.5 percent share in the APLNG project and operates the 9 mtpa LNG export facility on Curtis Island near Gladstone.

In April, APLNG shipped its 1000th LNG cargo since it started operations in 2016, and it also appointed Dan Clark as its chief executive officer.
