APLNG ships first cargo to Kansai Electric

ConocoPhilips-operated Australia Pacific LNG project shipped its first liquefied natural gas cargo to Kansai Electric Power of Japan, from its Curtis Island facility. 

The LNG Fukurokuju, which was recently built to fulfill Kansai Electric’s contract with Australia Pacific LNG, departed Curtis Island on June 29, 2016, APLNG said in a statement on Thursday.

Kansai Electric booked approximately 1 million tons of LNG per year on a 20-year sales and purchase agreement with APLNG signed in 2012.

Page Maxson, Austalia Pacific LNG CEO said the departure of LNG Fukurokuju marks the 27th shipment from the facility since exports began in January.

He added that the first cargo from the project’s second liquefaction train is expected by the end of 2016 and at full capacity the A$25 billion (US$17 billion) APLNG plant will be producing 9 mtpa of LNG.

Australia Pacific LNG is a joint venture between Origin (37.5%), ConocoPhillips (37.5%) and Sinopec (25%).
