Queensland reaches another LNG milestone
Australia Pacific LNG’s first cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its second train on Curtis Island is another significant milestone for an industry that didn’t exist just seven years ago.
An LNG train forms part of an LNG facility and serves to convert natural gas to a liquefied form for export.
“Australia Pacific LNG, all its employees and contractors are to be congratulated on delivering a first class world project professionally and safely,” APPEA Chief Executive Dr Malcolm Roberts said.
“Six trains are now fully operational on Curtis Island off Gladstone following unprecedented investment in world-first projects that are exporting a cleaner energy source to the world.
“They form part of a bigger $200 billion investment in new LNG projects which will soon see Australia become the world’s leading exporter of LNG.”
LNG production from Australia Pacific LNG’s first train began in December 2015 and the first LNG cargo was exported in January 2016. To date Australia Pacific LNG has loaded a total of 47 cargoes.
