Trelleborg wins contracts to supply Australian LNG developments
Tuesday, Jan 08, 2013
Trelleborg has been awarded three contracts to supply docking and mooring equipment and monitoring software to LNG projects on Queensland’s Curtis Island.
Queensland Curtis LNG is the world's first project to turn coal seam gas into liquefied natural gas (LNG). It is currently one of Australia’s largest capital infrastructure projects and will see an investment of over $20billion from 2010 – 2014, when it will provide cleaner hydrocarbon energy for export.
The development will expand QGC's current coal seam gas production in the Surat Basin of southern Queensland and build a 540km network of buried natural gas pipeline, linking the gas fields to Gladstone. Finally, a natural gas liquefaction plant will be developed on Curtis Island, to convert the exploited gas to LNG for export.
Integration and support
Trelleborg have won contracts to supply all three ongoing projects on the Island: Queensland Curtis LNG, Gladstone LNG and Australia Pacific LNG. After working closely with contractor John Holland Group, Trelleborg was chosen to supply the projects thanks to their ability to provide the comprehensive range of products, integration of systems and the level of support required in local regulatory guidelines and hazardous area standards.
Simon Wilson, Managing Director of Trelleborg Marine Systems’ Docking and Mooring division, said: “We are very pleased to have been awarded all three contracts on Curtis Island and I feel it’s a testament to the experience and expertise that we’ve built up in the LNG industry.
