Another milestone in the export of liquid natural gas from Queensland.

The Maran Gas Poisidonia has set sail carrying LNG from the second train at Queensland Curtis LNG (QCLNG).

It’s expected trains one and two will be producing enough LNG to load ten vessels per month by mid-2016.

That’ll be around eight million tonnes a year.

It has been a mammoth engineering exercise to get to this point.

The Curtis Island facility has more than 32,000 tonnes of steel, 139,000 cubic metres of concrete, 1950kms of electrical cable and 200kms of piping.
