Australia: Environment Minister Approves Arrow LNG Project
Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt has given approval for Shell’s Arrow liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant on Curtis Island off Gladstone, in central Queensland.
The approval also includes the Arrow gas transmission pipeline to Curtis Island and the dredging program for the LNG project.
The proposed Arrow LNG plant on Curtis Island will be supplied with coal seam gas from Arrow’s reserves located in the Surat Basin in south east Queensland and the Bowen Basin in central Queensland.
The liquefaction facility will produce up to 18 million tonnes per annum of LNG, and includes the phased construction of up to four trains on its Curtis Island site. Stage 1 includes the construction of two trains of around 4mtpa of LNG each on the Arrow site behind Boatshed Point.
