Australia: APLNG maintenance shutdown starts

More than A$5 million ($3.9 million) will be spent on Gladstone businesses within the next two months during Australia Pacific LNG export project’s planned shutdowns.

As previously informed by APLNG, the two-train 9 mtpa plant on Curtis Islands near Gladstone will have one unit closed from March 8-23 and the other on April 14-29.

ConocoPhillips, the downstream operator of APLNG, has spent over A$800 million with Gladstone businesses since 2011 and these upcoming shutdowns “are another way we
continue to contribute to the local economy,” ConocoPhillips Australia East President, Wendy King said in a statement.

“Approximately 200 additional contractors are required for the shutdowns, with 73 percent local to Gladstone. They will support the existing 280 locally-based employees and contractors who
permanently support operations at the LNG facility,” King said.

The LNG export project recently said it plans to spend around A$3 billion in planned activities this year, including the shutdowns.

APLNG is a joint venture between ConocoPhillips that has a 37.5% stake, Origin which is the upstream operator with a 37.5% stake and Sinopec that holds a 25% share.
