Gladstone LNG plants shipped 30 cargoes in February

LNG exports from the Gladstone port in Australia’s Queensland were almost flat in February when compared to the same month in the year before, according to Gladstone Ports Corporation.

Last month about 1.92 million tonnes of LNG left the three Gladstone terminals on Curtis Island, down 2.7 percent when compared to 1.97 million tonnes in the same month in 2020, GPC’s data shows.

This equals 30 LNG cargoes and compares to 30 shipments in February 2021.

Most of these exports or 986,783 tonnes landed in China, marking a drop when compared to 1.42 million tonnes last year.

The rest of Gladstone LNG exports in February went to South Korea, Singapore, Japan, and Malaysia, the data shows.

Gladstone LNG exports rose 6.8 percent in January to about 2.05 million tonnes, GPC said last month.

During the entire year of 2021, Curtis Island LNG plants dispatched 23.34 million tonnes or 356 cargoes of LNG, a rise of 4.3 percent compared to 2020.

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.
