Queensland Curtis LNG

Queensland Curtis LNG

Queensland Curtis LNG (QCLNG) will be the world’s first project to turn gas from coal seams into liquefied natural gas, or LNG.

This major, integrated US$20.4 billion project, located from Western Downs to Curtis Island, involves:

  • Expanding QGC’s existing natural gas production in the Surat Basin of southern Queensland.
  • Building a 540km buried natural gas pipeline network linking the gas fields to Gladstone.
  • Constructing a natural gas liquefaction plant on Curtis Island, near Gladstone, where the gas will be converted to LNG for export.


Approximately 900 tonnes of access scaffolding solutions has been supplied to the Southern Region (4+1), demonstrating Uni-span’s industrial capabilities by highlighting that Uni-span:

  • Has a large quantity of stock and labour resources to supply major industrial construction projects.
  • Doesn’t have the need to cross hire stock or labour.
  • Has a very competitive pricing structure.
  • Has ongoing supply of maintenance and support services.
  • Has the support for commissioning trades and services.

Another advantage is that logistically, Uni-span’s yard is situated in close proximity to the site. Order management system BizSync, also allows Uni-span to manage the project remotely and accurately.


The project will draw on QGC’s extensive natural gas expertise and BG Group’s international experience in liquefied natural gas, or LNG, at a time of rising demand for cleaner, more efficient energy.

Importantly, QCLNG will also help to address climate change by allowing natural gas, which has the lowest carbon emissions of all fossil fuels, to be transported economically around the world.
