GLNG on schedule
GLADSTONE'S GLNG project is progressing to schedule according to Santos GLNG CEO Mark MacFarlane's first update for 2012.
In the update Mr Macfarlane said they had now received the second delivery of pipe in Gladstone for the 420km underground gas transmission pipeline.
He said construction would start on the underground gas transmission pipeline this year along with the specialised pipeline marine crossing, and LNG tank construction.
"We have seen significant progress on Curtis Island and I am pleased to say that work has now begun on laying the foundations of our LNG train compressor," Mr Macfarlane said.
"Like laying the slab on a new house, this represents visual evidence of our LNG Plant coming to life."
He said employment and recruitment schemes were also going according to plan.
"In the last three months we filled 230 new positions on our Project. This year we will build upon our 1800 strong workforce with a significant number of positions to be filled," Mr Macfarlane said.
