QCLNG construction of dock and mainland facilities

This project required the construction of the equipment and personnel off-loading facility to service the Queensland Gas Company LNG (QCLNG) plant on Curtis Island during 2010 and 2011. The project was owned and operated by QGC, with Bechtel Australia as the EPCM contractor, and had a peak workforce of approximately 60 personnel.

Golding was awarded two contracts with a combined value of over $250m for the design and construction of temporary onshore and marine facilities in the Port of Gladstone to support the Queensland Gas Company (QGC) LNG project on Curtis Island.

The Curtis Island Dock construction works involved the design and construction of the island-based access and logistic support infrastructure including: the initial site access ramp; load-on/load-off and roll-on/roll-off facilities; and a ferry terminal for the QCLNG project.

The Mainland Facilities works involved the design and construction of the QCLNG mainland logistic support infrastructure including the Ferry Passenger Terminal, car parks, offices, truck marshalling and staging hardstand areas. The works were carried out at three locations on the mainland including Alf O’Rourke Drive, RG Tanna and Auckland Point.

Golding was able to completely deliver the Curtis Island projects on time and to budget with internationally procured elements delivered to just-in-time objectives. Mainland Facilities projects were also delivered on time and to budget. The designed and constructed elements were delivered in line with the project schedule and the mutual goals of QGC and Bechtel were achieved.
