Three liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects sit side-by-side on the southwestern coast of Curtis Island, opposite Gladstone on the mainland in Queensland, Australia. The project will see the development of the coal seam gas reserves and the initial construction of two LNG liquefaction trains, which will use coal seam gas as feed stock. The first two LNG trains will have a capacity of 4.5 million tonnes per annum each. A first train may be sanctioned on its own, and then followed by a second train; unless the partners can approve both trains at the same time. A third train will be added when resources and markets are firmed up to give a total capacity of 13.5 mtpa. A potential fourth train to lift capacity to 18.5 mtpa will be considered in the projects environmental impact statement. Laird Point is the proposed site of the LNG plant. The main 400-kilometre-long export pipeline to Curtis Island off the Port of Gladstone will be buried in a trench around 45 metres deep.
