Santos opens first gas processing hub

The first of Santos GLNG’s three major gas processing hubs being built in Queensland gas fields is now fully operational.

Gas is compressed at the brand-new facility and sent via a 420-kilometre pipeline to Gladstone, where it is set to flow into the Curtis Island liquefaction processing plant.

The hub, located in the Fairview field two hours’ drive north of Roma, was completed in October, and is receiving natural gas and water from surrounding coal seams via gathering networks.

santosConstruction has been completed on the two other major processing hubs in Fairview field and Roma, and these are now being commissioned. This involves final tests and checks before these hubs become operational.

Santos Vice President Queensland, Trevor Brown, said the significant CSG-to-LNG industry investment now underway would drive the Queensland economy over the long term.

“This is a great story for Queensland. Santos GLNG alone is projected to deliver ongoing investment in this state of an average of $1 billion a year from 2016-2020, and an average of half a billion dollars a year after that. This means long-term jobs for Queenslanders over the next 20-30 years,” Trevor said.

“This adds to the $6.2 billion we’ve invested with Queensland businesses in building our project to this point, and the $200 million invested in roads, hospitals, schools, weed management, and events.”

“Looking further ahead, our business is expected to contribute billions of dollars in royalties and taxes over many years – that’s money that can be spent on Queensland’s schools, hospitals, and roads.”

“LNG is without doubt the new shining light of the Australian economy. In just a few short years, LNG will overtake coal and become Australia’s second-largest export behind iron ore – that is a staggering statistic that demonstrates the massive investment underway today.”

“We’re making excellent progress at Santos GLNG. First gas is scheduled to arrive at our plant on Curtis Island in the coming weeks, we’re 90{87a03eb4327cd2ba79570dbcca4066c6d479b8f7279bafdb318e7183d82771cf} complete, we’re on budget and on track to deliver first LNG in the second half of 2015,” Trevor said.
