Bechtel has announced that GLNG Project Train 2, the fifth of six production trains on Curtis Island, has successfully begun producing liquefied natural gas (LNG). The three LNG projects continue smooth transition towards operations with just one train on the Australia Pacific LNG (APLNG) project to complete commissioning and startup before the entire programme moves into long term operations, producing more than 25 million tpy of LNG.
"Successfully delivering LNG production units for our three customers on Curtis Island will go down among the most significant achievements in Bechtel's 118 year history," said Alasdair Cathcart, General Manager of Bechtel's LNG business line. "Our teams have worked with the customers to overcome considerable challenges of megaproject construction, building the Curtis Island projects safely, on time and budget with the three facilities already producing above required capacity. I want to congratulate the entire team on this outstanding performance and continued focus as we work on bringing the last of the six trains on line safely and to the same quality our customers have experienced to date."
