Santos starts production from 2nd GLNG train

Australia’s Santos, the operator of the US$18.5 billion GLNG project, said on Thursday that the venture started producing liquefied natural gas from train 2 on Curtis Island, Queensland.

LNG production from GLNG’s first train began in September last year, with GLNG exporting first cargo of the chilled fuel in October.

Santos Managing Director and CEO Kevin Gallagher said first LNG from train 2 was “another milestone” for GLNG and marked the “successful delivery” of the two-train project, which has already produced over two million tonnes of LNG and shipped 32 cargoes.

GLNG train 2 start-up adds to Santos’ LNG portfolio, which also includes the Darwin LNG and PNG LNG projects,” Gallagher said.

GLNG produces natural gas from Queensland’s coal seams and converts it into LNG.

It involves gas field development in the Surat and Bowen Basins, a 420-kilometre gas transmission pipeline and the LNG plant on Curtis Island, near Gladstone which has the capacity to produce 7.8 million tonnes of LNG per year.

Santos is the operator and has a 30% interest in the project. Other co-venturers include Petronas (27.5%), Total (27.5%) and Kogas (15%).
