Work underway on new LNG operations facility in Gladstone

Sophia Rostron   |   September 11, 2016

Works are underway on the new marine operations terminal located on Gladstone Port Corporation land. The project, part of a $17 million investment by GLNG and QCLNG, is expected to support more than 100 local jobs during construction. 

In early August, Golding Contractors released in a company statement on LinkedIn that they were engaged to undertake civil works on the project, with construction due to be completed in May 2017. 

The project will cater for daily passenger ferries and vessels transporting materials and equipment to Curtis Island, supporting both GLNG and QCLNG operations.

Treasurer Curtis Pitt recently spoke about the Government-Owned Corporation receiving approval to lease a parcel of strategic port land for the construction of the new LNG operations facility. 

“This is another example of how the LNG industry, that represents more than $60 billion dollars' worth of investment in Queensland, continues to sustain local jobs and investment."

Queensland Minister for Ports Mark Bailey confirmed that “civil works have started following the Palaszczuk Government agreement to the GPC request to lease strategic port land for the new marine terminal.”

“This project is a result of great collaboration between the LNG operators, and our State-owned Port” Mr Bailey said.

The project delivers an opportunity for local tradies who are looking for construction jobs in the immediate term, and permanent employment as part of the facility's ongoing operations.
