Workshop fabrication of the pre-commercial demonstration (PCD) modules are complete for the Leigh Creek Energy Project (LCEP) in South Australia.
The aboveground plant workshop fabrication by Ottoway Engineering and other contractors is complete and is ready for mobilisation and final site fabrication.
Once the Activity Notification (AN) process is completed, Leigh Creek and its contractors will commence on site installation of PCD modules and supporting services equipment, which is expected to take approximately eight weeks.
In conjunction with the aboveground plant construction activities, three process wells will be drilled to service the underground in-situ gas (ISG) chamber.
The wells will use the same drill rig used to drill the earlier monitoring wells.
The next major phase of the project is PCD operations, which Leigh Creek expects to begin in Q3 2018.
The LCEP is 100 per cent owned by Leigh Creek Energy.
