First gas fed into Santos GLNG facility

First gas fed into Santos GLNG facility

Santos GLNG said it has introduced natural gas into its LNG plant on Queensland’s Curtis Island, marking a key step in plant commissioning.

The gas brought into the two-train facility will fire the first gas turbine generator to be used for high voltage power generation, the company said in a statement.

Santos Vice President Downstream GLNG Rod Duke said, “We’ve completed almost all of the construction required for initial production, and LNG plant commissioning is progressing strongly.”

A number of plant subsystems have been commissioned so far, including emergency electric power generation, power distribution and switchboards, instrument air, nitrogen, diesel supply, water systems, inlet gas separation and filtration, and the main flare. Commissioning will continue as Santos GLNG approaches first LNG in the second half of this year.

Duke said that Santos GLNG is over 90% complete and on track for first LNG in the second half of 2015.
