Gladstone LNG exports slightly up in March

LNG exports from the Gladstone port in Australia’s Queensland rose slightly in March when compared to the same month in the year before, according to Gladstone Ports Corporation.

Last month about 1.99 million tonnes of LNG left the three Gladstone terminals on Curtis Island, up 0.2 percent when compared to 1.98 million tonnes in the same month in 2021, GPC’s data shows.

The plants shipped in total 31 LNG cargoes, compared to 30 shipments in March 2021.

Most of these exports or 1.13 million tonnes landed in China, marking a drop when compared to 1.44 million tonnes last year.

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

Gladstone LNG exports were almost flat in February reaching about 1.92 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.
