The $11 billion Queensland Curtis LNG Project comprises of three sites built simultaneously to expand gas operations for three different customers. The island has six production trains, six concrete storage tanks with a combined capacity of 380,000 cubic metres and combined provides 25 million tonnes of LNG a year. Together the three plants are expected to account for about 8 per cent of global LNG production.
The construction of the six LNG storage tanks – two per plant – required about 45,000 cubic metres of concrete each. To facilitate the concrete delivery from our onsite mobile plant to the construction operations, Boral concrete agitators were among the 272,000 trucks transported to Curtis Island by barge.
Our team worked 484,131 hours over 52 months and another 19,000 hours during demobilisation, delivering 45 days ahead of schedule. In addition, one of our employees received recognition from the client on a "job well done" for his outstanding safety record and conscientious effort.
Boral was involved in the project from June 2011 to September 2015.
