Bechtel Completes Installation Of Modules For LNG Train At Australian Facility

August 2014, Vol. 241, No. 8

Bechtel delivered and installed all of the modules for the LNG production train at the GLNG facility on Curtis Island in Queensland, Australia.

Train 1 is made up of 82 modules that were built at a Bechtel-managed module yard in the Philippines and transported to Curtis Island over 19 months. Modules for Train 2 are being constructed at the same facility and shipped to the island. The final modules for the second train are scheduled to be delivered and installed later this year.

Bechtel is responsible for half of the LNG liquefaction capacity under construction in Australia, including three LNG facilities on Curtis Island. The GLNG, Queensland Curtis LNG, and Australia Pacific LNG facilities are being built simultaneously, side-by-side, making these projects the largest concentration of Bechtel work in the world. In addition, the company is the principal contractor for the Chevron Wheatstone LNG project in Western Australia.
