ABB opens Queensland facility for oil and gas industry

ABB has opened a new facility dedicated to supporting companies involved with developing the oil and gas sector in Queensland.

ABB’s new facility, situated at Eagle Farm in Brisbane, utilises ABB’s experience in the oil and gas sector as well as its presence in the state and underscores its long-term commitment to the region, the company claims.

Speaking at the opening held on March 4, 2010, John Gaskell, country manager for ABB Australia, welcomed local government officials, customers and engineering group representatives.

He then explained the company’s strategy towards strengthening its oil and gas engineering capability and presence in the area.

“ABB are fully committed to the region and currently working on systems engineering and front-end design for the CSM industry,” said Gaskell.

“This means that we are actively raising our profile within the state in response to the massive expansion potential the CSM projects – both current and proposed – offer us.

“We are very supportive of the development of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) sector in Queensland, as the industry is looking to capitalise on the global trend towards more environmentally-friendly fuels.

“This fits nicely with ABB’s mission of helping customers improve their operating performance and productivity whilst saving energy and lowering environmental impact in a sustainable way.”
