Santos GLNG underground pipeline burial has begun

IN THE LNG business, when they say it's in the pipeline, they are usually talking about a really big pipeline. This one is no exception.

Burial of the 420-kilometre Santos GLNG underground gas transmission pipeline began recently.

The pipeline will carry coal seam natural gas from the gas fields in the Surat and Bowen basins to the joint venture's LNG facility on Curtis Island.

Santos Vice President GLNG Mark Macfarlane said that the pipeline burial was a major milestone.

"Over the past year we've seen the number of people working on our project approach 5000 with over 900 people working on the construction of the pipeline," Mr Macfarlane said.
