Bechtel installs final GLNG Train 1 module

All modules have now been set in place, marking a major step in the completion of the Train 1 section of the two-train plant.

Bechtel crews are currently completing the piping and electrical works in preparation for first gas on site.

The project, currently at the peak of construction, is now over 80 per cent complete and on track for the first shipment of LNG in 2015.

The GLNG Project involves the development of gas fields in the Bowen and Surat basins, the construction of a 420 km underground gas transmission pipeline, and a two-train LNG processing facility on Curtis Island at Gladstone.

Santos has a 30 per cent interest in the project, along with PETRONAS which holds a 27.5 per cent interest, Total which holds a 27.5 per cent interest and KOGAS which holds a 15 per cent interest.
