Gladstone LNG exports rise in April

LNG exports from the Gladstone port in Australia’s Queensland rose in April when compared to the same month in the year before, according to Gladstone Ports Corporation.

“The Port of Gladstone is seeing healthy LNG trade volumes which are coming close to matching previous records,” GPC said in a social media post on Wednesday.

Last month, about 2.046 million tonnes of LNG left the three Gladstone terminals on Curtis Island, and compares to 1.993 million tonnes in April 2021.

GPC said this also marked a 2.79 percent increase from the previous month of March.

The firm has not yet released detailed statistics on LNG exports, such as the destination of the April supplies.

Last month, the three plants shipped in total 1.99 million tonnes of LNG with most of these exports or 1.13 million tonnes landing in China.

During the entire year of 2021, Curtis Island LNG plants dispatched 23.47 million tonnes or 358 cargoes of LNG, and compares to 22.36 million tonnes or 340 cargoes in 2020, GPC previously said.

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.
