Australia Pacific LNG inks three domestic gas deals

Australia Pacific LNG, the operator of the 9 mtpa LNG export facility on Curtis Island near Gladstone, has signed gas sale agreements for a total of 5.75 petajoules with three customers.

According to a statement by APLNG issued on Tuesday, the customers include Ampol Refineries and Mount Isa Mines.

These agreements bring Australia Pacific LNG’s total contributions to the East Coast market in 2024 to 158 PJ, it said.

“These sales are in addition to our existing long-term domestic contracts and commitments
under the mandatory gas market code introduced last year and demonstrate the volumes
Australia Pacific LNG consistently provides to the domestic gas market,” CEO Dan Clark said.

APLNG recently appointed Clark as its CEO.

Former CEO Khoa Dao, who took over the role in 2022, returned to the United States to take up a role as chief commercial officer, ConocoPhillips, APLNG said.

Last month, APLNG shipped its 1000th LNG cargo since it started operations in 2016.

The LNG terminal operator said in a statement issued on April 17 that the milestone LNG cargo was loaded onboard the 2016-built 174,000-cbm, Cesi Gladstone.

APLNG is a joint venture between US-based ConocoPhillips (47.5 percent), Australia’s Origin Energy (27.5 percent), and China’s Sinopec (25 percent).

Origin operates APLNG’s gas fields, upstream exploration, production and pipeline system, while ConocoPhillips operates the downstream LNG export facility and the LNG export sales business.

There are two 20-year LNG export offtake agreements in place. One is for 7.6 mtpa to JV partner Sinopec, and the other is for 1 mtpa to Japan’s Kansai Electric.
