Gladstone LNG exports rise in July

LNG exports from the Gladstone port in Australia’s Queensland have increased 6.1 percent in July when compared to the same month in the year before, according to Gladstone Ports Corporation.

In July, about 1.77 million tonnes of LNG has left the three Gladstone terminals on Curtis Island.

This equals 27 LNG cargoes and compares to 25 shipments in July 2020, GPC said.

Moreover, most of these exports, or 1.16 million tonnes, landed in China, followed by South Korea with 347,413 tonnes, Japan with 135,708 tonnes, and Malaysia with 124,042 tonnes.

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.

To remind, GPC recently reported that LNG exports from these plants reached record highs in the 2020/21 financial year despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

The three Gladstone LNG terminals have exported more than 23 million tonnes of LNG during the period, a rise of 3.72 percent.
