Work on the Santos’ $16 billion GLNG project on Curtis Island started in May 2011, and now, four years on it is close to starting up.
Santos has already brought gas into its LNG production Train 1 at the facility and over the coming weeks, the GLNG team will start up Train 1’s ‘front end’ pre-treatment units before chilling down the ‘cold end’ refrigeration units to make LNG.
According to Santos Managing Director and CEO David Knox GLNG is on track to produce first LNG around the end of the quarter.
When in full operation the facility will have a production capacity of 7.8 million tons of LNG per year.
