New employee transport contract with SANTOS

Santos Contract 2015 800x400

Buslink Queensland is pleased to announce we have secured a contract to transport SANTOS GLNG workers daily to and from their worksite on Curtis Island, just off the coast of Gladstone.

Curtis Island is a short distance from Gladstone (20 minutes by ferry) and is home to three LNG projects worth billions of dollars in investment. Bechtel is in charge of the engineering, procurement and construction of the plants for gas proponents Santos, BG Group and Origin Energy/ConocoPhillips.

Construction of BG Group’s Queensland Curtis LNG kicked off in 2010, and was the first facility to produce gas, following completion in 2014. Australia Pacific LNG and the Santos-led GLNG both commenced construction in 2011 and were both producing in late 2015.

Our Gladstone Branch Manager, Brett Wilkins said:

“SANTOS has strict safety and environment requirements which Buslink was required to meet. It is pleasing to note that all staff pulled together and worked hard to enable us to satisfy these requirements.

“Now that we are working on Curtis Island, drivers report that it is a tremendous start and finish to the day – a ferry ride to and from the mainland!”
