Gladstone LNG exports rise in September

LNG exports from the Gladstone port in Australia’s Queensland have continued to increase in September, according to Gladstone Ports Corporation.

In September, about 1.99 million tonnes of LNG has left the three Gladstone terminals on Curtis Island, a rise of 5 percent when compared to the same month a year ago, GPC’s data shows.

This equals 30 LNG cargoes and compares to 28 shipments in September 2020.

Most of these exports or 1.03 million tonnes landed in China, marking a drop when compared to 1.22 million tonnes last year.

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

To remind, Gladstone LNG exports also rose in August to about 1.90 million tonnes, up 14.1 percent year-on-year. Exports also reached record numbers in the 2020/21 financial year.

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.
