Bechtel, the EPC contractor, has delivered and installed all of the modules for the first LNG production train at the Santos GLNG facility on Curtis Island in Queensland, Australia. The installation marks an important milestone in the construction of the plant, which will consist of two production trains.
“Milestones such as this demonstrate the expertise and dedication of everyone involved in the project,” said Alasdair Cathcart, general manager of Bechtel’s LNG business. “With the modules now in place, work is underway to connect the individual parts of the production train in advance of testing them as part of the overall system. We are pleased with the progress and will continue to work with our customer to successfully deliver the facility.”
Train 1 is made up of 82 modules that were built at a Bechtel-managed module yard facility in the Philippines and transported to Curtis Island over 19 months. Modules for Train 2 are being constructed at the same facility and shipped to the island. The final modules for the second train are scheduled to be delivered and installed later this year.
