APLNG moves closer to first LNG

As at 30 September 2015, 1,176 development wells had been drilled and 1,050 wells commissioned.

All gas processing trains are now mechanically complete with 14 of the 15 gas processing trains commissioned.

The downstream component of the project is now 94 per cent complete.

The project includes a 530 km, 900-1,050 mm API 5L externally-coated gas transmission pipeline from the Surat and Bowen basins to the LNG processing site located at Laird Point on Curtis Island, Gladstone.

“Key activities in the final path to first cargo from Train 1 have now been completed,” the company said in its quarterly production report.

“Mechanical runs have been completed on all six compressor units and Train 1 is in final commissioning stages.”

The APLNG Project is jointly owned and operated by Origin Energy (37.5 per cent interest), ConocoPhillips (37.5 per cent) and Sinopec (25 per cent interest).
