Less than two months after its official opening, AGL Energy’s $310-million dollar Newcastle gas storage facility at Tomago in New South Wales, has shipped its first consignment of liquefied natural gas.
The shipment, 17 tonnes of LNG, has been supplied to a commercial processing facility in the Hunter region, the company said in a statement.
AGL’s Executive General Manager, Group Operations, Doug Jackson said initially there would be two to three LNG deliveries a week from the NGSF.
The processing plant that converts pipeline natural gas to LNG is capable of processing up to 66,500 tonnes of LNG per year and storing 30,000 tonnes throughout the year.
