GLNG reaches major milestone with gas processing all go

THE GLNG plant on Curtis Island is one step closer to shipping its first LNG cargo.

Bechtel has announced the successful introduction of feed gas, the gas coming through the pipeline from the fields out west to be converted into LNG.

Mechanical runs on all six of the plant's Train 1 refrigeration compressors have also been successfully finished.

The compressors are a fundamental component of the plant used to progressively cool the gas until it reaches liquid form.

"This is a major milestone and marks the beginning of the LNG processing," Bechtel senior project manager Andrey Polunin said.

"Throughout the year we have achieved a series of key milestones to reach this pivotal stage of the project."

Once construction is finished Bechtel will hand the plant over to Santos GLNG to operate it.
