BG Group’s Australian subsidiary, QGC Pty Ltd., along with JV partners CNOOC and Tokyo Gas, has announced a two-year, A$1.7-billion (US$12.4-billion) development of its natural gas tenements west of Wandoan, Queensland, Australia, to support gas production. The development, known as Charlie, involves constructing 300-400 wells, a large field compression station and associated pipelines and facilities, which will feed into existing gas processing and water infrastructure at Woleebee Creek. The works are part of the continuous development of QGC’s tenements in the Surat basin to sustain natural gas supply to both domestic customers and the two-train Queensland Curtis LNG (QCLNG) liquefaction plant on Curtis Island, near Gladstone. The investment, which follows receipt of Commonwealth and state government environmental approvals, has been approved by QGC’s parent company, BG Group, and the JV partners. QGC has a 73.75% interest in the relevant natural gas tenements.
