Santos brings gas into GLNG train on Curtis Island

SANTOS has brought gas into its LNG production Train 1 at the GLNG project on Curtis Island at Gladstone.

The delivery of gas is a key milestone in the ongoing plant testing and commissioning process, and keeps GLNG on track for first LNG around the end of the third quarter.

Over the coming weeks, the GLNG team will start up Train 1's front end pre-treatment units before chilling down the cold end refrigeration units to make LNG.

Santos managing director and chief executive officer David Knox said GLNG was on track to produce first LNG around the end of the quarter.

"GLNG is progressing extremely well. Our upstream facilities are fully operational and we are in the final stages of commissioning on Curtis Island," Mr Knox said.

"As we continue to hit our key milestones, we know exactly what remains to be done and we're focused on safely delivering GLNG on time and on budget."
