LNG exports from the three liquefaction plants located on Curtis Island offshore Gladstone totaled 1.78 million tons spread across 27 cargoes in April 2019.

The volume represents a 7.8 percent decrease compared to the 1.93 million tons reported in March 2019, data from the Gladstone Ports Corporation shows.

However, compared to April 2018 when the three Curtis Island facilities shipped a total of 1.68 million tons, this represents a 6 percent jump.

China remained as the top importer of the Gladstone LNG volumes with a total of 1.29 million tons of the volumes landing at Chinese import facilities.

The remaining volumes were shipped to South Korea, Japan and Malaysia, the data shows.

So far this year, the three facilities shipped a total of 7.38 million tons of LNG, with the majority, 5.2 million tons landing in China.

The LNG export plants located on Curtis Island include Shell’s Queensland Curtis LNG, Santos Gladstone LNG and the ConocoPhillips-operated Australia Pacific LNG terminal.
