WORK on Curtis Island's QCLNG project is on track to have the first ship laden with LNG sourced from coal seams sailing from Gladstone harbour in 2014.

In its June edition of The Energy, QGC reports there is a lot still to do across across the 4500sq km covered by Queensland Curtis LNG, but the workforce of more than 11,600 people was rapidly putting the pieces into place.

More than half of the project is complete and key targets are being met.

Work is ramping up to connect the gas wells and build processing facilities that will enable commissioning of the LNG plant to start around the end of the year.

QGC reports the pipelines team continues to reach new milestones, laying the first pipe on Curtis Island after completing Australia's longest large-diameter underwater pipe pull across The Narrows.

On Curtis Island, about 2000 construction workers continue to work on the liquefaction plant, LNG tanks and loading jetty.

All 62 modules required for Train 1 - and three for Train 2 - have been delivered and the remaining 15 are on track for delivery by the end of the year.

Dredging in the Gladstone harbour for the QCLNG project has been completed

On Curtis Island, installation of the first fibre optic cable from the main control building to the Train 1 compressor sub-station was carried out, and the first fibre optic cables were pulled from the main control room to the Train 2 compressor building.

QGC says the fibre optic cables are a critical means by which plant operators control the various process units and support services of the LNG plant.

Work on the installation of the LNG jetty support risers and four loading arms has been completed, and the fourth of six mooring dolphin pylon structures for the jetty have been concreted.

Work has started on the installation of marine terminal building pre-cast concrete deck beams.

The first internal concrete layer has been placed over the carbon steel floor in LNG Tank B, and the first foam glass insulation blocks have been placed on it. 

In terms of physical completion, the Curtis Island site is a rapidly changing landscape, QGC says.
