Santos GLNG has reached another key milestone with the final three modules, or prefabricated steel structures, arriving and being moved on site at Curtis Island, Gladstone where they will soon form a key part of its first LNG train (processing unit).

The structures, all cryogenic modules, weigh a total of 2,777 tonnes and will form part of the LNG train’s liquefaction system.

Santos Vice President Downstream GLNG Rod Duke said the business had reached another significant step as the modules were the last of the major components required to deliver Santos GLNG’s first liquefaction processing train, known as ‘Train 1’.

“Train 1 is made up of 82 modules and it has taken close to two years to construct and transport these components to our LNG plant on Curtis Island,” Mr Duke said.

“These final modules are currently being set in place on Train 1, using self-propelled modular transporters, before being connected to our LNG plant.”

Bechtel is constructing a two-train LNG plant on Curtis Island for Santos GLNG. In total, 111 modules will be produced for Train 1 and Train 2.

Train 1’s largest module – a chiller module with components measuring 35 metres wide, 48 metres long and weighing 2,500 tonnes – was also recently moved into final position on the site.

“The arrival of Train 1’s final modules and other recent construction milestones across the business demonstrates Santos GLNG’s ability to deliver world-class projects and operations,” Mr Duke said.

“We are leading the way in building a new and economically significant industry for Queensland, and will deliver billions of dollars in royalty payments to the people of this state.

“Equally importantly, the construction and delivery of the modules has been completed safely.”
