The GLNG project has received environmental approval from Australia's federal government.
The project is a joint venture between gas producer Santos and LNG firms Petronas and Total.
The approval covers the development of coal seam gas resources in the Bowen and Surat Basins around Roma, construction of a pipeline from the gas fields to the coast, and construction of up to three processing trains at an LNG plant and export facility on Curtis Island, offshore Gladstone.
GLNG is an integrated development that includes coal seam gas production and processing facilities, onshore pipelines and LNG plant facilities.
The project involves the production of LNG using coal seam gas from the GLNG gas fields in the Bowen and Surat Basins in Queensland and includes a two-train LNG plant with a capacity of 7.2 million tonnes a year.
The two-train GLNG project has binding offtake agreements for five million tonnes per year of LNG.
