The GLNG project is one of the largest in the world. In 2012, Fluor made significant progress on the project, including construction of temporary camps; pilings; a pond; road networks; setting mechanical equipment; installation of pipelines, gas/water gathering networks and overhead power lines; and wellpad mechanical, engineering, and instrumentation construction. Shutdown and tie-ins to existing infrastructure have also been completed.
Perhaps the greatest milestone of this phase of the construction was the achievement of 2 million safe work hours.
The workforce on the project represents people from all over the world, including Australia, Europe, the Philippines, South Africa, and the U.S. The project leadership strives to create harmony among the differing cultures.
The project represents a major investment in the local community and has increased the number of jobs in Queensland. Santos and Fluor are investing billions of dollars in the community through local procurement of goods and services for the project.
In addition, the Fluor Australia GLNG community engagement plan has been implemented through sponsorship initiatives that benefit not-for-profit organizations and indigenous groups.
