A joint venture (JV) involving Amec Foster Wheeler received a five-year engineering master services agreement (MSA) by Arrow Energy to support its coal seam gas (CSG) development and production in Queensland, Australia, according to a June 5 press release.

The first project awarded under the MSA is the FEED for the expansion to the Tipton gas processing facility, which is part of Arrow’s strategy to further develop its Queensland CSG reserves. 

The MSA will be delivered by a JV between Clough, Amec Foster Wheeler and China Petroleum Engineering.

Arrow is a standalone company owned by a JV between Shell (NYSE: RDS.A) and PetroChina (a subsidiary of China National Petroleum Corp.). Arrow supplies about 20% of Queensland’s natural gas requirements.
