Santos has achieved a milestone with the delivery of its final modules for its LNG processing plant at Curtis Island.
The two trains, built in the Philippines, have a combined weight of close to 3000 tonnes, and bring an end to around 15 million work hours over two and a half years.
The delivery of the trains was welcomed by Santos GLNG vice president downstream, Rod Duke.
“The precision and expertise involved in building these vital pieces of infrastructure has been extraordinary,” Duke said.
“Each module had to be built with a margin of error of only 2mm – an amazing feat when you think the heaviest weighed more than 2,500 tonnes and longest stretched nearly 75 metres.
“Importantly, construction work was completed with an excellent safety record, and I congratulate everyone involved for their efforts in safely reaching this milestone.”
Last year Australian Mining visited the site where the trains were constructed in the Philippines.
The trains will be installed by Bechtel.
Santos GLNG is a joint venture between Santos, Petronas, Total, and Kogas.
