LNG Production from Coal Seam Gas

Presented by Fran van Reyk 


LNG production from Coal Seam Gas  is not only new to Queensland it is also a world first.  Although the component parts of the supply chain are not new the production of LNG from thousands of low pressure wells has not been done before on the scale being built in Queensland.   The objective of the presentation is to give the audience an overview of LNG production and then discuss the interdependencies of plant design and operation with reservoir performance and associated uncertainties.


Fran is a qualified civil engineer with over 25 years' experience within the oil and gas, industrial, manufacturing and engineering contractor industries in executive management, project management, technical, marketing and corporate affairs roles.

Fran's career began with Esso Australia Limited as drilling engineer on the Flounder Platform in Bass Strait and later developed her career in the downstream hydrocarbons and petrochemical manufacturing industries.  After being a customer of WorleyParsons for many years during her career at Caltex Australia Limited as the Manager Engineering & Refining, Fran joined WorleyParsons in 2012 as the Global Director Improve Development and is responsible for developing new capabilities and deploying existing WorleyParsons global capabilities to specific locations and is currently focused on Coal Seam Gas to LNG in Queensland.
