Australia: Toll Starts QCLNG Work
Toll Energy, part of the Toll Group, said that work has started on a $45 million transport and storage contract as part of coal seam gas explorer QGC’s major Queensland Curtis Liquefied Natural Gas (QCLNG) project.
The QCLNG project involves expanding exploration and development in southern and central Queensland and transporting gas through a 540km underground pipeline network to Curtis Island near Gladstone where it will be liquefied.
Toll will provide the transportation and storage of materials required to complete the project’s upstream requirements.
Toll’s Global Resources division, which includes Toll Energy, is utilising its industry-leading logistics capabilities to provide the transport and storage of equipment needed to support the upstream project, including the transportation of compressors, transformers and pipe in field from Brisbane to central Queensland.
Toll Global Resources CEO David Jackson said Toll Group was excited about being part of one of Australia’s largest capital infrastructure projects.
“This project has allowed us to demonstrate to Queensland and beyond the superior logistics solutions Toll has to offer,” Mr Jackson said.
“We are delighted with the opportunity to help deliver this crucial service to such an important project, and prove yet again the end-to-end capabilities Toll can provide to the resource sector in Australia and around the world.”
The contract award is the third major contract Toll’s Global Resources Division has been successful in securing from proponents involved with Queensland’s LNG developments on Curtis Island.
