The four-year contract covers the provision of integrated logistical services by DB Schenker and has a total volume of about A$500 million (€350m, Dh1.8bn).
The project has a total investment volume of €25 billion (Dh132.5bn) making it the biggest gas production undertaking in Australia, and currently one of the largest in the world.
