The GLNG plant is located on Curtis Island approximately five kilometres north of the city of Gladstone, Queensland.
Construction commenced on the LNG plant in 2011 with the first cargo in October 2015. The LNG plant consists of two trains. These trains have a combined nameplate capacity of 7.8M tonnes per annum, and act like a refrigerator cooling the natural gas that arrives at the plant through GLNG’s gas pipeline network down to -161°C. The gas becomes a liquid at just slightly over atmospheric pressure. Prior to this cooling process, small amounts of CO2 and water are removed from the natural gas. The liquified natural gas is pumped into large, insulated storage tanks where it is stored at atmospheric pressure until loading onto large insulated LNG ships for export.
