The Arrow LNG Plant Project on Curtis Island at Gladstone in Queensland received Federal Government approval on December 10, 2013. This followed Queensland State Government approval having been granted in September, 2013. The liquified natural gas plant on Curtis Island is one of five other linked development projects that are part of the greater Arrow CSG-LNG project. The other projects include the following:

  • Surat Gas Project
  • Arrow Bowen Pipeline
  • Arrow Surat Pipeline
  • Bowen Gas Project

All these linked projects are in varying stages of having approvals granted by both Federal and State governments and all play an important role in meeting future world demand for cleaner burning fuels.

Arrow LNG Plant Previously Known as the Shell Australia LNG Project
The Arrow LNG Plant Project on Curtis Island in Central Queensland was originally known as the Shell Australia LNG Project. It will be supplied with coal seam gas that is to be extracted from Arrow Energy's gas reserves located in the Bowen Basin in Central Queensland and the Surat Basin in South East Queensland. Arrow Energy Pty Ltd is equally owned by Royal Dutch Shell and PetroChina.

Arrow LNG Plant Requires Much Development Before it Can Process LNG at Curtis Island
The Arrow LNG Plant, that has been referred to as a 'significant project' by the Queensland State Government, requires the following work to be undertaken before it will be able to process coal seam gas:

Dredging of the sea bed to allow access to its marine facilities by large gas carriers
Construction of marine facilities, including jetties, on the mainland at Gladstone
The construction of an LNG Carrier Terminal, offloading facilities and jetties on Curtis Island in the area of Hamilton Point, North China Bay and behind Boatshed Point
Construction of a gas pipeline from Curtis Island to near the Bruce Highway
The building of the liquefaction plant where the coal seam gas (CSG) will be converted into LNG (liquefied natural gas).
The construction of storage facilities to hold the LNG while awaiting it to be shipped, via carriers, to the fast growning LNG world market.

The dredging off Port Curtis is to be managed by Gladstone Ports Corporation
. It will extend shipping lanes to the berth pockets as well as develop swings basins for the large LNG carriers to manoeuvre and load. The Arrow LNG Plant itself will produce up to 18 million tonnes of LNG a year through the phased in construction of four trains (individual processing plants) on the Curtis Island site. Stage one of the development will involve the construction of two trains with a capacity to produce four million tonnes of LNG each. These two trains will be constructed behind Boatshed Point.

Shell entered into an agreement with Gladstone Ports Corporation in December, 2009, to acquire land to the south west of Curtis Island. The land is part of the Gladstone State Development Area's 1,500 hectares within the Curtis Island Precinct, that has been specifically put aside for LNG development.

In 2004 Arrow Energy granted the front end engineering design contract for the Arrow LNG Plant to CJV, an international consortium comprising Saipem, Chicago Bridge and Iron (CB&I) and Chiyoda Corporation. Arrow has also started the design process required for the building of a six kilometre tunnel linking the LNG plant on Curtis Island with the mainland at Gladstone, for the purposes of transporting gas and other utilities between the two locations.

Arrow Energy

Arrow Energy develop gas fields, produce and sell Coal Seam Gas (CSG) and generate electricity.Developing since 2000 and supplying since 2004, Arrow delivers around 20% of Queensland's gas supply from five CSG fields located in the Bowen and Surat Basins.Arrow sells gas to a few companies more
