Gladstone LNG exports drop in July

LNG exports from the Gladstone port in Australia’s Queensland dropped by 7.5 percent in July due to lower demand in China, according to data by Gladstone Ports Corporation.

Last month, about 1.641 million tonnes of LNG or 26 cargoes left the three Gladstone terminals on Curtis Island, and compares to 1.774 million tonnes or 27 cargoes in July 2021, the data shows.

Compared to the previous month when LNG exports reached some 1.783 million tonnes of LNG or 28 cargoes, they dropped by almost 8 percent.

Most of these July LNG exports or 876,307 tonnes landed in China, marking a drop of almost 25 percent when compared to 1.167 million tonnes last year.

The rest of Gladstone LNG exports in July went to Malaysia, South Korea, Japan, and Singapore.

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.
