Shell advances major Qld LNG project

Environmental work on Royal Dutch Shell's liquefied natural gas project in Gladstone will start shortly after the Queensland government declared the operation as a "significant" project.

Shell said in a statement today it had received the government declaration after it submitted its Initial Advice Statement (IAS).

The company said it will start work on an environmental impact statement to develop the project further.

The proposed LNG facility will be built on a site, jointly owned by Shell and Arrow Energy, that is capable of producing LNG from coal seam gas.

Securing approval of the IAS is a logical progression of building our interest in the CSG-to-LNG industry in Queensland," Shell vice president business development Asia Pacific Roger Bounds said.

"Shell sees Queensland and Australia as a good place to invest and do business, and looks forward to working with the Government and community as the project progresses."
