Leighton – APLNG Curtis Island Workers Camp

Gladstone, Queensland, Australia

Forming part of the six LNG trains on Curtis Island, the Australia Pacific LNG plant is Australia’s largest producer of coal seam gas (CSG). It not only supplies Queensland’s domestic gas market, but also processes CSG into liquefied natural gas to meet the demand of customers around Australia and globally. The development of the plant took some five years, shipping its first cargo in 2016.

To support the construction of the plant, Walz Group was engaged by Leighton Contractors (now known as CPB Contractors) late in 2011 to build the works accommodation camp. Our scope incorporated:
