First GLNG cargo on way to South Korea

The first cargo of liquefied natural gas from the Santos-operated US$18.5 billion GLNG project in Australia has been shipped to South Korea’s Kogas.

The MISC-operated 152,300 cbm Seri Bakti, which arrived at the GLNG plant on September 28, left the terminal’s jetty on Friday.

It is expected to dock at the Incheon LNG terminal in South Korea around October 27, shipping data reveals.

GLNG project construction began in 2011 and has taken more than 95 million work hours to date.

More than 10,000 people have worked on the project which saw more than $15 billion invested Australia-wide, including $8 billion in Queensland alone,”  Santos said in a statement.

The LNG plant on Curtis Island off Gladstone started producing the chilled gas from Train 1 in September this year.

Work on the second train is continuing to progress well, and it is expected to be ready for start-up by the end of the year with first LNG in the second quarter 2016, Santos said.

Once fully operational, the two-train LNG plant will have the capacity to produce 7.8 million tonnes of LNG per year.

Australia’s Santos has a 30% interest in GLNG. Other co-venturers include Petronas (27.5%), Total (27.5%) and Kogas (15%).
