QGC brings gas compressor stations online

Six compression stations near Dalby will draw gas from the Surat Basin and move it along the 540-kilometre pipeline to Curtis Island at Gladstone.

Spokesman Paul Larter says the beginning of the operation means the Curtis Island liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant is on track to begin exporting in the final quarter of the year.

“It means that we now have the capacity to be able to send gas from the Surat Basin in sufficient quantities for the LNG to be operational when that’s ready,” he said.

He says a workforce of about 2,000 to 3,000 people will be needed in the Surat Basin in the years to come.

“The upstream component of our project, that will include people who operate facilities but also people involved in the future development of facilities which will be undertaken over the next several decades,” he said.
