The third aspect of the project is the construction of afacility in Curtis Island which is supposed to process 9 million tonnes per annum.List of companies:a) The first company included in this collaboration is the Origin energy. The company isresponsible for operating the gas fields of the Australian Pacific lng. They are also responsible for the
maintenance of the transmission pipeline. In addition, Origin Energy is also responsible foraddressing the various operations of the supply management (Originenergy.com.au, 2017). Thisincludes the exploration and production of gas and energy as well as retailing of the products.b) The next company listed in the collaboration is the ConocoPhillips. They sole responsibilitylies in the operation and construction of the two facilities present on Curtis Island(Conocophillips.com, 2017). The company is considered the largest independent production andexploration company in the whole world. They are also responsible for the production of natural gasand liquids.c) The last company is Sinopec which collaborated in the venture as a customer but was laterlisted as a partial equity owner (Sinopec.com, 2017). The company is considered the second largestproducer of natural gas and crude oil.Requirements of the project:The required amount for the project included a sum of 24.7 billion$.

Moreover, the Bonaparte basin in northernAustralia as well as the Kupe Gas field in New Zealand is also another place for operations.This process is followed by securing approvals from the land owners and the government.After this, the engineers work to analyse the extraction process. This is followed by the developmentof a piping system for delivery. This is also used to produce electricity in their stations.The power generation process includes the conversion of natural gas to electricity. These arebasically done by utilizing their vast power stations.The retailing is done by adopting various flexible modes of payments.
