Shipments of modules, or prefabricated steel structures, for Santos GLNG’s liquefied natural gas plant are powering through the sea towards Curtis Island, Gladstone with two-thirds of these now sent.
Among one of the recent shipments to leave the module yard was the fourth and final propane condenser rack module. Each of these spans 17 cars in length; the longest modules destined for the LNG trains.
At Curtis Island, where these regular shipments of modules are being received, work continues on other facilities that are being built to convert gas to liquid and to transport it across the site.
The product loading facility, where tankers will berth to collect LNG from 2015, remains a key focus with concreting underway.
The two LNG tanks continue to progress. The nine percent nickel inner shell plates are now being welded onto the inside walls of LNG Tank B.
The workforce has also been busy installing interconnecting piping and pulling electrical cabling between and through the installed modules in the utilities area and Train 1.
