Santos has brought natural gas into its LNG production Train 1 at GLNG on Curtis Island, Australia. This delivery is a key milestone in the current plant testing and commissioning process.
The GLNG team will now start up the ‘front up’ pre-treatment unit before chilling down the ‘cold end’ refrigeration units to make LNG. The first LNG production is anticipated in 3Q15.
David Knox, Santos Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “GLNG is progressing extremely well. Our upstream facilities are fully operational and we are in the final stages of commissioning on Curtis Island […] GLNG will be an important addition to our growing LNG portfolio. Santos’ two other LNG projects in PNG and Darwin continue to deliver excellent results and the three projects combined will ultimately deliver to Santos over 3 million tpy of LNG– 10 times the quantity we sold in 2013.”
