Santos GLNG's three gas compression hubs are operational

ALL three of Santos GLNG's major natural gas compression hubs are now operational, marking the end of the first phase of gas field construction.

The achievement comes after testing of the third and final hub, near Roma, was completed and handed over to the long-term operations team.

This milestone means the Curtis Island Santos GLNG site is one step closer to becoming operational by the end of the year.

Santos Vice President Queensland Trevor Brown said the construction and commissioning of these three major hubs is a significant milestone.

"This is a year of delivery for Santos GLNG. Our gas field facilities are complete, our wells are performing strongly, our pipeline is supplying gas to our LNG plant, and we're approaching 95% completion overall," Mr Brown said.

Work on the hubs began in 2012 and required 18.6 million work hours to complete construction and commissioning. Importantly, work was completed with an excellent safety record.

Together, the three hubs required 2,900 tonnes of steel, 21,700 cubic metres of concrete, 1,050 kilometres of cabling, and 105 kilometres of pipework.

The three hubs service an area of approximately 7,000 square kilometres, and at nameplate capacity will be able to process 555 terajoules of gas per day, the equivalent daily consumption of more than nine million homes.
