OGLP Plant have signed an LOA with BOC for the  engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a 50 tonne per day Micro LNG Plant located 35km west of Chinchilla, Queensland.

The signing comes after the successful completion of BOC’s Micro LNG Plant located in Westbury, Tasmania which was commissioned in 2010. The Queensland plant will be the first plant  of its type built on mainland Australia dedicated to help provide an ‘LNG highway’ along the east coast.

The plant will use the same technology applied to the Westbury facility and is expected to be producing LNG by the second quarter of 2014.
