Bechtel International Inc. selected Honeywell to design and implement automation and safety solutions for a new multi-train liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility under construction as part of the Australia Pacific LNG Project in Queensland, Australia.

The Australia Pacific LNG Project — a joint venture between Origin Energy, ConocoPhillips and Sinopec — will create a long-term industry utilizing Australia Pacific LNG’s coal seam gas (CSG) resources in the Surat and Bowen basins.

Honeywell will provide Integrated Control and Safety Systems (ICSS) at the new facility, which converts CSG to LNG. The Project will produce coal steam gas for commercial markets locally and overseas and already supplies gas to power stations in Queensland, major industrial customers and homes and businesses in south east Queensland.

The solution consists of components including Honeywell’s Experion PKS, distributed control system, Safety Manager, which includes Honeywell’s Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS), their Fire & Gas Systems (FGS), and Enterprise Building Integrator, which serves as a platform for the fire detection systems and security systems, and integrates with the Experion PKS.
