Bechtel opens world’s first coal-seam-gas to LNG plant
On December 28th, Bechtel began loading LNG sourced from coal seams at their Queensland Curtis LNG facility.
The QCLNG project connects more than 2,000 onshore wells, which flow into a 335 mile pipeline that moves the gas to the liquefaction facility on Curtis Island. The gas is then chilled to -259.6 degrees Fahrenheit to become a liquid, which makes it 600 times smaller enabling it to be stored and transported in LNG vessels to markets around the world.
