Gladstone LNG exports decline in December

LNG exports from the Gladstone port in Australia’s Queensland dropped 14.2 percent in December, according to Gladstone Ports Corporation.

Last month about 1.88 million tonnes of LNG left the three Gladstone terminals on Curtis Island, compared to 2.19 million tonnes in the same month in 2020, GPC’s data shows.

This equals 29 LNG cargoes and compares to 34 shipments in December 2020.

Most of these exports or 1.19 million tonnes landed in China, marking a drop when compared to 1.40 million tonnes last year.

The rest of Gladstone LNG exports in December went to South Korea, Malaysia, Japan, and Singapore, the data shows.

Gladstone LNG exports rose in November to about 2.13 million tonnes, up about 4.8 percent year-on-year, GPC said last month.

During the entire year of 2021, Curtis Island LNG plants dispatched 23.34 million tonnes or 356 cargoes of LNG, a rise of 4.3 percent compared to 2020.

Curtis Island is home to the Santos-operated GLNG plant, the ConocoPhillips-led APLNG terminal, and Shell’s QCLNG facility. These are the only LNG export facilities on Australia’s east coast.
