Australian Mining reported that Workers at the QCLNG project on Curtis Island were instructed to stay indoors after a vapour leak was detected.

As quoted in the market news

A monitor picked up the leak at 4:30am and a text message was sent to employees about the incident advising them to stay in their crib huts.

Workers returned to work after lunch when it was deemed safe to do so.

Bechtel Gladstone general manager Kevin Berg stated:

The vapour is from the LNG produced through the first production train and currently being stored in the LNG holding tank.

It is currently understood to have originated from a flanged component in one of the LNG pumps in the tank, which in turn triggered a local gas alarm alerting the plant operations staff to take appropriate action.
