Trelleborg wins contracts to supply Australian LNG developments
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 LNG. It is currently one of Australia’s largest capital infrastructure projects and will see an investment of over $20 billion 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 540 km 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.
Trelleborg have won contracts to supply all three ongoing projects on the Island: Queensland Curtis LNG, Gladstone LNG and Australia Pacific LNG.
