Gladstone plants boost January LNG exports

LNG exports from the Gladstone port in Australia’s Queensland rose 6.8 percent in January, according to Gladstone Ports Corporation.

Last month about 2.05 million tonnes of LNG left the three Gladstone terminals on Curtis Island, compared to 1.91 million tonnes in the same month in 2020, GPC’s data shows.

This equals 31 LNG cargoes and compares to 29 shipments in January 2021.

Most of these exports or 1.04 million tonnes landed in China, marking a drop when compared to 1.29 million tonnes last year.

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

Gladstone LNG exports dropped 14.2 percent in December to about 1.88 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.
