Macmahon Holdings says it has been awarded a $150 million Gladstone LNG civil works subcontract in Queensland.

The subcontract involves the site preparation for a liquefied natural gas plant and includes clearing, bulk earthworks, pavements, roads and drainage for a 144 hectare greenfield site on the south west side of Curtis Island near Gladstone.

The company was awarded the subcontract by Bechtel Australia and the two parties will now work to finalise contract terms and conditions during the mobilisation phase.

Macmahon chief executive officer Nick Bowen said the contract award was an "excellent win" for the construction business.

"This project award highlights the strength and diversity of the services Macmahon is able to deliver to its broad base of clients and sees the company making a significant return to the rapidly growing LNG sector," he said in a statement.

The GLNG project, a joint venture between Santos, PETRONAS, Total and KOGAS, will process coal seam gas into LNG.

Macmahon's work on the project will start immediately and is scheduled for completion in late 2012.
