Modules power towards Curtis Island as GLNG progresses
TWO-thirds of the modules needed for the Santos GLNG project on Curtis Island have been sent, the company said in its February project update.
Shipments of the prefabricated steel structures are powering through the sea towards Curtis Island, Gladstone.
Among one of the recent shipments to leave the module yard in Batanga was the fourth and final propane condenser rack module.
Each of these spans 17 cars in length, and they're the longest modules destined for the LNG trains.
At Curtis Island, where the regular shipments are being received, work continues on other facilities that are being built to convert gas to liquid and transport it across the site.
The product loading facility, where tankers will berth to collect LNG from 2015, remains a key focus with concreting underway.
The two LNG tanks continue to progress. The nine per cent nickel inner shell plates are now being welded onto the inside walls of LNG Tank B.
The workforce has also been busy installing interconnecting piping and pulling electrical cabling between and through the installed modules in the utilities area and Train 1.
Santos said there were 2446 people working at the LNG plant and port. The company celebrated two million safe work hours at the LNG plant and four million safe work hours at the module yard in January.
A total 30,000 metres of piping and 35,000 metres of cabling has been laid at the LNG plant so far.
