The Woodside-operated Karratha gas plant in Western Australia, part of the North West Shelf (NWS) project, has loaded its 5000th liquefied natural gas cargo (LNG) cargo since it started production back in 1989.

The milestone LNG cargo was loaded on Tuesday onboard the 140,708-cbm LNG carrier Northwest Swan which is headed for Japan, Woodside said in a brief statement via the company’s social media channels.

The Karratha gas plant facilities include five LNG processing trains, two domestic gas trains, six condensate stabilisation units, three LPG fractionation units as well as storage and loading facilities.

It has an annual LNG export capacity of 16.9 mtpa which is supplied mainly to companies in the Asia Pacific region.

Woodside operates these facilities on behalf of the NWS project participants. Other NWS JV partners are BHP Billiton, BP, Chevron, Japan Australia LNG (MIMI) and Shell.
