Santos updates Gladstone LNG project status

The Santos Ltd.-led Gladstone coal seam gas-LNG project (GLNG) has introduced first gas to the LNG plant on Curtis Island. The gas will be used to test the plant facilities and move forward in the commissioning process in readiness for the start of LNG production slated for the end of September.

Santos has been progressively starting up all its major processing facilities in its Surat-Bowen basin gas fields since the start of 2015. These include the 420-km pipeline to Curtis Island and all of the LNG facility electric power generation. It has also unloaded into storage the propane and ethylene refrigerants needed to chill the gas and tested the six refrigeration compressors.

Train 1 front-end pretreatment units will be started up during the next few weeks in advance of chilling the refrigeration units.

Santos has 30% interest and operatorship of GLNG. Other participants are Petronas with 27.5%, Total SA with 27.5%, and Korea Gas Corp. with 15%.
