Toll has started work under its $45 million contract with coal seam gas company QGC as part of the Queensland Curtis liquefied natural gas project.

The project involves expanding exploration and development in southern and central Queensland.

Gas will be transported through a 540km underground pipeline network to Curtis Island near Gladstone where it will be liquefied.

Toll is providing the transportation and storage of materials required to complete the project’s upstream requirements.

Toll’s Global Resources division, which includes Toll Energy, is providing the transport and storage of equipment needed to support the upstream project.

This includes transporting compressors, transformers and pipe from Brisbane to central Queensland.

Toll Global Resources CEO David Jackson says the company is excited about being part of one of Australia’s largest capital infrastructure projects.

"This project has allowed us to demonstrate to Queensland and beyond the superior logistics solutions Toll has to offer," Jackson says.

"We are delighted with the opportunity to help deliver this crucial service to such an important project."

The contract is the third major one Toll’s Global Resources division has secured from companies involved in LNG projects on Curtis Island.
