Bechtel has announced that it has completed the construction of the Curtis Island LNG program, with Australia Pacific LNG (APLNG) starting production from Train 2.
Bechtel has now delivered all six LNG production trains to QGC, Santos GLNG and APLNG on Curtis Island, off the shore of Queensland, Australia. Combined, the facilities are capable of supplying 25 million tpy of LNG.
Alasdair Cathcart, President of Bechtel’s Oil, Gas and Chemicals business unit, said: “Completion of the unprecedented scale of engineering and construction work on Curtis Island in Australia is a historic achievement for Bechtel, the largest greenfield program we delivered since the company was founded in 1898.
"No company has ever attempted to build three simultaneous construction programs in one location. Successful delivery of reliable gas liquefaction facilities along with sustainable local benefits is a testament to the talent and ingenuity of our global team, collaborative relationship with the three customers, the excellence of our extensive global supply chain, and the immense support of the Gladstone community. Thanks and congratulations to the entire team on achieving the extraordinary."
