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.

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
