VIDEO: QCLNG Jetty Nearly Complete (Australia)
As QGC approaches the final stages of construction to deliver first LNG in 2014, the company provided a video update of where the QCLNG project is in this phase of the project. Construction of the LNG jetty, the final component in the LNG transfer chain, is nearing completion.
The jetty is the final part of the LNG chain process. Nearing completion, it measures some 250m in length. Gas from coal seam gasfields in central Queensland will be exported for use by homes and businesses around the world.
BG Group is developing the Queensland Curtis LNG Project on Curtis Island, Queensland, Australia – the world’s first LNG plant to be fed by coal seam gas reserves.
It is expected that the QCLNG plant will be ready to start commissioning with gas around the end of 2013. First LNG sales are expected to begin in the second half of 2014.
On completion, the LNG plant will comprise two LNG trains – each able to produce more than four million tonnes of LNG a year, two storage tanks each able to hold about 140,000 m3 of LNG, a marine facility for passenger and equipment transportation between the mainland and Curtis Island, and marine loading facilities for LNG cargoes.
The LNG plant will receive natural gas from production wells in southern Queensland via a 540km pipeline.
