Gladstone LNG plants boost exports in October

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

In October, about 2.06 million tonnes of LNG has left the three Gladstone terminals on Curtis Island, a rise of 2.5 percent when compared to the same month a year ago, GPC’s data shows.

This equals 32 LNG cargoes and compares to 31 shipments in October 2020.

Most of these exports or 1.20 million tonnes landed in China, marking a slight drop when compared to 1.21 million tonnes last year.

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

Gladstone LNG exports also rose in September to about 1.99 million tonnes, up about 5 percent year-on-year, GPC said last month.

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.
