Fuels testing laboratory opens in Queensland

Thursday, 13 August, 2015

Product testing and inspection company Intertek has announced the opening of a new fuels testing laboratory in Gladstone, Queensland. The lab was opened by Ian Galloway, regional COO for Intertek’s Sub-Sahara Africa and Australasia region, who recently hosted local liquefied natural gas (LNG) producers and petroleum processors at a ribbon-cutting ceremony and facility tour.

Galloway said the laboratory will service all major LNG producers in the region — including Australia Pacific LNG, Queensland Curtis LNG and Santos LNG — “as well as downstream petroleum clients, providing a local fuels and gas testing service to ensure quality and component analysis with rapid turnaround times”.

“We are truly thrilled to be supporting world-class LNG projects in an emerging energy destination,” he added.

The opening of the facility is said to be demonstrative of the significance of Queensland’s role as a major LNG producer in the global market, with the town of Gladstone now an industrial powerhouse for three LNG plants on Curtis Island. Within a few years, Australia is set to become the largest producer of LNG in the world.
