Building on the success of QCLNG
Named after the graticular section of the block on which the largest part of the development will take place, the Charlie development is seen as a vindication of the broader QCLNG’s project’s earlier exploration and production successes – but also as a critical new supply channel for a project that is exporting a lot of gas.
The overall QCLNG project was first commissioned in December 2014, with commercial operations from its second train commencing in November 2015.
Both of the project’s trains are expected to reach plateau production by mid-2016, producing enough LNG to load around ten vessels per month combined, or the equivalent of around 8 million tonnes
The new infrastructure at the Charlie development will be linked to facilities that were developed as part of Phase 1 of the QCLNG Project, including gas and water processing facilities.
Water produced from wells will be processed at the Northern Water Treatment Plant at Woleebee Creek, before being transported via SunWater’s 120 km Woleebee Creek to Glebe Weir Pipeline, which is capable of moving up to 36,500 ML/a of treated CSG water.
