Bechtel has successfully converted natural gas from coal seams into liquefied natural gas (LNG) on the second production train at the Queensland Curtis LNG (QCLNG) facility in Australia. The first LNG from the second train of the project has set sail onboard the vessel Maran Gas Posidonia.

“Successful production of LNG on the second train of the QCLNG facility is an important milestone for Bechtel’s Queensland team as they continue to deliver an unprecedented LNG capacity,” said Alasdair Cathcart, Bechtel’s global LNG general manager. “This milestone is a testament to our team’s hard work, innovative approach, and successful collaboration with the customer and many subcontractors and suppliers around the world. We are now working towards first LNG production on the other two Curtis Island projects – Santos GLNG and Australia Pacific LNG.”

QCLNG, one of the three projects Bechtel is simultaneously building on Curtis Island on the east coast of Australia, is owned and operated by QGC, a BG Group company. Bechtel completed construction on Train 1 in December 2014. The Maran Gas Posidonia was delivering the 27th cargo of LNG. Performance testing of the Train 2 systems and processes continues with full handover of the facility expected in the next few months.

At full capacity, the three Curtis Island projects combined will produce about 25 million tonnes of LNG per annum for the global market, the equivalent to powering a city the size of Tokyo with 13 million people. Bechtel is also the principal downstream contractor for the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project in Western Australia, and is partnered with customers to build about a third of the world’s LNG liquefaction capacity currently under construction to provide alternative, cleaner fuel sources.
