Fluor Australia Pty., Ltd. was awarded a contract by Esso Australia, Ltd. to design, engineer and procure facilities for a grassroots natural gas processing plant to be located at Gippsland in Victoria.
The plant produced ethane, propane and heavier hydrocarbons.
The plant was designed for recovery at 300 million cubic feet per day and a maximum throughput of 400 million cubic feet per day.
Fluor leveraged key engineering resources, with both the local office and the Houston, Texas office participating in the engineering and design phase.
Engineering commenced in November 1972, with construction underway early January 1974 and project completion achieved in the spring of 1975.
