LNG exports from the three liquefaction plants located on Curtis Island offshore Gladstone totaled 1.76 million tons in October, remaining nearly flat for the third month in a row. 

The volumes were some 9,000 tons below the September figures that reached an eight-month high.

Data from the Gladstone Ports Corporation show that 26 vessels departed the three facilities, one less than in the previous month.

However, compared to October last year when exports reached 1.68 million tons, this is a 4.27 percent increase.

China remained the top buyer of Australian LNG volumes with 1.32 million tons of the chilled fuel absorbed during the month of October, up 26.3 percent on 1 million tons in the previous month, and 17.5 percent up on the volumes reported in the corresponding month last year.

The remaining volumes from the three Curtis Island facilities landed in South Korea, Japan and Malaysia.

LNG exports from the three terminals totaled 16.9 million tonnes in the January-October period, with a total of 254 cargoes shipped.

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.
