MELBOURNE, Apr. 27 -- Chevron Australia has let a $180 million contract to China Offshore Oil Engineering Corp. Ltd. for the fabrication of process modules for the Gorgon-Jansz LNG project on Barrow Island.

COOEC will build and supply more than 157 process modules for the 3-train LNG plant and domestic gas facilities on the island.

Work on the modules will begin in China during January 2011 and be completed by October 2012.

The company hopes this contract will lay the foundation for further work in the Australian market.

The Gorgon-Jansz facilities will produce 15 million tonnes/year of LNG and 300 TJ/day of gas. First LNG is scheduled for 2014 and first domestic gas by end 2015.
