QGC confident of project approval

IT'S now no longer a case of when, but how the Queensland Curtis LNG project will go ahead.

Queensland Gas Company (QGC) Senior Vice President Ian Bradshaw was in what some would term a “quite cocky” mood when talking about the development and progress of the QCLNG project in Gladstone.

“QCLNG is far ahead of the rest of the pack and we expect that we will be the first boat out in 2015,” Mr Bradshaw said. “The reality is that we are six months ahead of other proponents.”

Guest speaker at the 7th Golding Industry Conference yesterday, Mr Bradshaw said the QCLNG project had been working through the environmental impacts, with the Federal Government constantly adding conditions.

“For the last month or so we have been sitting at the federal government's table discussing and negotiating those conditions,” Mr Bradshaw said. “We are actually swapping drafts on a day-by-day basis.”

Federal environmental approval of QCLNG on Curtis Island is expected to be announced on October 22.
