Santos GLNG has announced that its construction and commissioning teams on Curtis Island have achieved 4 million hours without a lost time incident (LTI).
Last month, the company announced that it expects to produce first LNG from the project, which is now 95% complete, around the end of 3Q15.
Santos Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, David Knox, recently commented: “The progress at GLNG over the past year has been excellent […] The project has continued to go from strength to strength and we have made significant progress on the ground in both 2014 and in the first quarter of this year […] The delivery of GLNG will consolidate our strategic LNG portfolio and further position us as a key player in the growing Asian gas market.”
In April 2015, Santos started up the first of six gas turbine generators on Curtis Island.
When fully operational, Santos GLNG expects the project to have the capacity to produce 7.8 million tpy of LNG.
