LNG player BG Group informed that commercial operations began from the second train at its Queensland Curtis LNG plant in Australia.
QGC, BG Group’s Australian subsidiary, has also assumed control of Train 2 from Bechtel Australia, which built the facility. BG now has full control of both LNG trains and associated facilities at QCLNG, BG said in a statement on Wednesday.
By mid-2016 the integrated project is expected to reach plateau production, producing enough LNG to load around ten vessels per month combined which is equivalent to exporting around eight million tonnes per year.
According to BG, since starting production in December 2014, 71 cargoes have been shipped from the liquefied natural gas project on Curtis Osland off Gladstone.
The partners in Train 2 are BG (97.5%) and Tokyo Gas (2.5%), which is also a foundation customer.
