LNG exports from the Gladstone port in Australia’s Queensland have continued to increase in November, according to Gladstone Ports Corporation.
Last month about 2.13 million tonnes of LNG has left the three Gladstone terminals on Curtis Island, a rise of 4.8 percent when compared to the same month a year ago, GPC’s data shows.
This equals 33 LNG cargoes and compares to 31 shipments in November 2020.
Most of these exports or 1.53 million tonnes landed in China, marking a drop when compared to 1.62 million tonnes last year.
The rest of Gladstone LNG exports in November went to South Korea, Japan, and Malaysia, the data shows.
Gladstone LNG exports also rose in October to about 2.06 million tonnes, up about 2.5 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.
