GLNG signs off project
JUST six months left in historic Queensland construction project.
Tuesday 31 May 2016  

LAST week a fifth CSG to liquefied natural gas (LNG) processing facility (train) on Curtis Island near Gladstone was completed, bringing arguably the most economically important construction project in a generation closer to an end.

Bechtel announced that the Santos-operated GLNG train two, successfully started producing liquefied natural gas (LNG) making it the fifth of six facilities to reach that milestone.

The Curtis Island trains convert CSG piped from the vast gas fields of the Surat Basin into about 25 million tonnes of LNG a year, which is exported mostly to Asia.

General Manager for Bechtel, Alasdair Cathcart said it was yet another important milestone for Gladstone.

“Successfully delivering LNG production units for our three customers on Curtis Island will go down among the most significant achievements in Bechtel’s 118-year history,” he said.

“Our teams have worked with the customers to overcome the considerable challenges of mega project construction, building the Curtis Island projects safely, on time and budget with

the three facilities already producing above required capacity.”

Santos Managing Director Kevin Gallagher said the first LNG from Train two marked the successful final delivery of the GLNG project, which has already exported two million tonnes of LNG overseas.

The ConocoPhillips, Origin Energy APLNG facility is the last remaining processing Train to be built on Curtis Island - and that is expected to be completed within the next six months.

At its height, there were nearly 9000 people employed on Curtis Island building the three LNG plants, and the total cost of building the CSG sector in Queensland has been far more than $50 billion.
