Final APLNG module reaches Curtis Island

Final module for APLNG reaches Curtis Island

The last module out of the total 69 for the Austalia Pacific LNG project arrived on Curtis Island off Gladstone on Tuesday.

“The last of Australia Pacific LNG’s 69 modules was successfully delivered today marking the arrival of all 260 modules for Bechtel’s LNG construction projects on Curtis Island,” Bechtel, who is building three LNG plants on Curtis Island, said in a statement.

Bechtel is also doing engineering, procurement and construction works on the remaining two LNG projects on Curtis Island, the Santos GLNG and QCLNG.

The APLNG modules were built and shipped from the module construction yard in Batam, Indonesia.

LNG modules are pre-fabricated steel structures designed and built to fit into their specific location perfectly and connect to other components to form the LNG plant structure.

The Australia Pacific LNG project includes the development of natural gas from coal seams in the Surat and Bowen basins and construction of a gas transmission pipeline from the gas fields to the LNG facility on Curtis Island.

The project is on track for first LNG in mid-2015 with full production expected from both trains by the end of FY2016.

APLNG is a joint venture between Origin (37.5%), ConocoPhillips (37.5%) and Sinopec (25%).
