VIDEO: Black smoke from flare is burning from QCLNG plant

THE Queesland Curtis LNG plant flare is burning on Curtis Island today.

This follows the announcement that they would begin infrequent flaring over the coming weeks as the second production train is commissioned.

The Observer reporter Campbell Gellie went to Auckland Point Hill earlier to see how it was going, and he said there was a small crowd watching the flare.

Flaring represents the controlled burning of gas released from our plant when it cannot be processed into LNG.

A statement from QGC on flaring reads: "This is particularly relevant during the commissioning and start-up phase of construction as the plant is progressively brought online and equipment undergoes performance tests."
