Full project details
As part of Australia Pacific LNG’s broader investment in Queensland, Laing O’Rourke delivered the onshore and offshore infrastructure to support the liquefied natural gas facility being constructed on Curtis Island which will process coal seam gas from the Surat and Bowen basins, ready for export to domestic and global markets.
The project involved the construction of an aggregate loading facility at Fisherman’s Landing, a 441m jetty supporting a load-out conveyor and shuttle, as well as berthing and mooring dolphins to assist with the load-out of aggregate onto barges.
Laing O'Rourke also constructed an unloading aggregate facility at Curtis Island and expanded the northern end of Fisherman’s Landing to build a roll-on roll-off facility.
To improve access to Curtis Island for construction personnel, Laing O’Rourke constructed a ferry passenger terminal on Curtis Island.
The project also included the construction of the unloading conveyor and the E-crane on Curtis Island, which enabled aggregate materials to be unloaded and stockpiled for construction activities.
The project comprised the following works:
- The installation of a piled platform structure to support the barge loading conveyor.
- Conveyor construction (including instrumentation) and the installation of the loading hopper, belt feeder, belt conveyor, barge loader and all conveyor instruments.
- Bulk earthworks and the installation of a roll-on roll-off facility suitable for a single vessel.
- Delivery of a bus parking facility for 14 buses, a temporary bus and car hold area, emergency vehicle and mini bus areas, an 11-space car park for operational personnel, a truck staging area for 20 single-articulated trucks, a temporary truck hold area and an access road suitable for heavy truck and bus traffic.
- The installation of electrical facilities for the ferry terminal, bus parking area, truck staging area, roads and buildings.
- The installation of temporary buildings, fencing and gates, drainage systems, and an extensive landscaping package.
- The installation of a passenger ferry dock, including a floating pontoon to berth two 400-person ferries.
