IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) announced today that it was awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract by Santos Ltd. (STO AU) for its Gladstone Liquefied Natural Gas (GLNG) project in Queensland, Australia. Fluor’s EPC contract includes upstream facilities associated with the 7.8 million tonne-per-year liquefied natural gas (LNG) project that will extract and liquefy gas from coal deposits for eventual export to Asia and other global markets. Fluor booked $3.5 billion in its fourth quarter of 2010 for this new contract.

“Fluor looks forward to continuing its close working relationship with Santos, the GLNG partners and the state of Queensland in assisting them to become a leading supplier of LNG to key economies in Asia,” said Peter Oosterveer, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals Group. “Fluor shares Santos' and the partners' commitment to build this landmark clean energy project with the highest performance in safety and project execution while maintaining world-class environmental standards and close engagement with the local communities.”

Fluor was previously awarded the upstream front-end engineering design contract in June 2009 by Santos for the GLNG project and the early works contract in May 2010. Since then, Fluor has been working closely with Santos to engage with industry stakeholders, especially local businesses, the Industry Capability Network and local interest groups to ensure maximum opportunities for Australian industry as the project progresses. Fluor has been a major player in Australia’s engineering and construction industry for nearly 60 years and currently has three office locations in Australia (Perth, Brisbane and Melbourne) with more than 1,300 professionals serving oil and gas, mining and industrial, maintenance and operations, and infrastructure clients.
