MAN boost APLNG upstream assets
MAN Energy Solutions completed the installation and commissioning of the Talinga Orana gas gathering station (TOGGS).
Operated by Origin Energy, the station adds important versatility to the Australia Pacific LNG upstream asset portfolio and the ability to bring gas to the market.
The Talinga Orana Gas Gathering Station (TOGGS) is a dual train gas gathering station located approximately 30 kilometers southwest of Chinchilla, Queensland, Australia.
The gathering station enables Origin to maximise coal seam gas (CSG) production from the Talinga and Orana gas fields in the Surat Basin.
MAN noted in a brief social media statement that it has installed and commissioned two electric motor driven RB56 compressor trains.
Origin is the upstream operator for Australia Pacific LNG and is responsible for the development of its CSG fields in the Surat and Bowen basins and the main transmission pipeline that transports the gas to the LNG facility on Curtis Island near Gladstone.
Australia Pacific LNG project has a 30-year life span. It started production in late 2015 and shipped its first cargo in January 2016. It is a joint venture between Origin (37.5 per cent), ConocoPhillips (37.5 per cent) and Sinopec (25 per cent).
