About: The Queensland Curtis LNG (QCLNG) project is one of the largest capital infrastructure undertakings to ever take place in Australia. This project alone, that began in 2010, is costing more than 20 billion dollars. The QCLNG operation is to be the first project in the world to create liquified natural gas (LNG) from gas derived from coal seams. The project is centred on the LNG plant being constructed on Curtis Island at Gladstone in Queensland.

QCLNG is Part of the BG Group's International Undertakings

The QCLNG project is the result of BG Group's international experience with liquified natural gas and QCG's local natural gas experience. The project is being undertaken at a time when the world is demanding cleaner more efficient energy.

QCLNG Main Contractor is Bechtel Oil and Gas

The main contractor contributing engineering and procurement requirements as well as undertaking the construction of the QCLNG plant itself, on Curtis Island at Gladstone, is Bechtel Oil and Gas. Bechtel Oil and Gas is carrying out engineering, procurement and construction of three LNG plants on Curtis Island making it the largest concentration of Bechtel projects to be undertaken in the one place anywhere in the world. The three LNG plants that are arranged side by side in the island belong to:

• QCLNG with a capacity to process 8.5 million tonnes of LNG a year

• GLNG with a capacity to process seven million tonnes annually and

• APLNG with a capacity to produce 4.5 million tonnes of LNG per annum

The construction of the three LNG plants by Bechtel Oil and Gas has involved the building and delivery of 260 modules that were constructed around the world as pre-fabricated steel structures before being shipped to Curtis Island. The modules that have been arriving on Curtis Island since August 2012 have been placed in position to become the main components of the three plants, while at the same time making Queensland, and Gladstone in particular, one of Australia's leading industrial centres.

The QCLNG project has involved the following activities:

1. The construction of the natural gas liquefaction plant on Curtis Island where natural gas is converted to LNG for export around the world. The plant includes two LNG production units, or trains, each able to produce over four million tonnes of LNG annually, two 140,000m3 capacity storage tanks, a marine facility to take people and equipment from the mainland to Curtis Island and a LNG marine loading facility

2. The construction of a 540 kilometre network of buried pipelines to take the natural gas from the gas fields to the Gladstone, Curtis Island LNG plant. The pipeline that comprises no less than 46,200 individual sections has been built by contracting company; McConnell Dowell and Consolidated Contracting Company.

3. The expansion of the existing QGC natural gas production from the Surat Basin in Southern Queensland

4. The building of a temporary construction camp on Curtis Island that is capable of housing 1,700 people.

BG Group is the sole owner of QGC, it has operations in 25 countries around the world spanning five continents. BG Group is headquartered in Britain but over 60 percent of the company's professional employees are located outside of the UK.


QGC is wholly owned by BG Group, a global energy company. QGC is a natural gas explorer and producer focused on having the worlds first conversion of gas from coal seams into liquefied natural gas.One of the largest capital infrastructure projects underway is the Queensland Curtis LNG more
