Gladstone LNG (Queensland, Australia)
Gladstone LNG is one of three huge LNG Liquefaction plants that were built on Curtis Island, Queensland, Australia. This project converts Queensland’s coal seam gas to LNG.
This plant is owned by Santos, Petronas (Malaysia), Total (France) and KOGAS (South Korea) and has a capacity of 7.8 MTA. Santos has been producing natural gas in Queensland for more than 50 years and gas from coal seams for more than 16 years.
Bechtel awarded the insulation management contract to Insulations, Inc. because of a strong resume providing these services all over the world, including several previous overseas projects.
The scope was to provide technical support and material take offs, schedule material supply and manage logistics to meet project schedule.
Insulations, Inc. manufactured materials off site and provided a local warehouse and fabrication facility to support the project. We trained the insulators to install LNG Insulation, provided quality inspection services and helped supervise planning of the work.
To effectively coordinate our activities with Bechtel, our staff maintained offices at the Gladstone LNG site on Curtis Island. Our warehouse and fabrication shops were located on the mainland at Callemondah, Queensland.This project lasted two years and was valued at $19,000,000 US.
