LNG module success marks key milestone for Bechtel

ALL of the modules for the first LNG production train at the GLNG facility on Curtis Island have been successfully delivered and installed by Bechtel.

The successful installation marks a major milestone in the construction of the plant, which will consist of two production trains.

Bechtel LNG general manager Alasdair Cathcart said milestones such as these demonstrated the expertise and dedication of everyone involved in the project.

"With the modules now in place, work is underway to connect the individual parts of the production train in advance of testing them as part of the overall system," Mr Cathcart said.

"We are pleased with the progress and will continue to work with our client to successfully deliver the facility."

Train one is made up of 82 modules that were built at a Bechtel-managed module yard facility in the Philippines and transported to Curtis Island over a 19-month period.

Modules for train two are being constructed at the same facility and shipped to the island.

The final modules for second train are scheduled to be delivered and installed later this year.
