GE technology is key to QCLNG’s first large-scale conversion of CSG to LNG

In Australia, GE Oil & Gas (NYSE: GE) technology has played a pivotal role in the first-ever large-scale production of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from coal seam gas (CSG) at BG Group’s Queensland Curtis LNG (QCLNG) plant on Curtis Island. GE's gas turbines, centrifugal compressors, and generators are integral parts of the QCLNG facility, which has begun producing LNG for its first export shipment.

This first LNG milestone is part of GE’s long-term commitment to the QCLNG project, having signed a 22-year contractual service agreement with QGC, BG Group’s Australian subidiary and operator of QCLNG, in early 2013 to provide technology services. 

The QCLNG plant is the first of three LNG projects to be constructed on Curtis Island, all of which will utilize GE’s technology. The resulting LNG will be primarily targeted for export markets including China, Japan, and Singapore.
