LNG plant puts Queensland on energy map


An LNG facility, which was opened today in Chinchilla, Queensland, has been heralded as a “positive new era for cleaner fuel” by BOC’s South Pacific Managing Director Colin Isaac.

The plant was officially opened by the Queensland Premier Campbell Newman (who used the opportunity to also launch a new Queensland Fuels and Energy strategy). BOC, a member of The Linde Group, has entered into a long‐term gas supply agreement with QGC, who supply natural gas, which BOC will liquefy, producing LNG, for a range of domestic fuel uses in the manufacturing, mining and long‐haul trucking markets.

The gas will also be available for use in the stationary energy sector and for cleaner power generation in remote communities.

The total spend for the gas, micro‐LNG plant and supply chain infrastructure by BOC will be over $200m (£108m) over 15 years, producing up to 50 tonnes of LNG per day into the domestic market, which is the equivalent of 70,000 litres of conventional diesel per day.
