Australian LNG player Santos on Thursday revealed that GLNG partners closed a deal with AGL for the purchase of 254 petajoules of feed gas for the export plant on Curtis Island.
Deliveries of the gas are scheduled to start in January 2017 and continue for a period of 11 years, Santos, the operator of the GLNG plant said in a statement.
The gas sourced from Queensland’s coal seam gas fields will be delivered at Wallumbilla gas hub.
Vice President Downstream GLNG Rod Duke said the additional gas volumes will further diversify the supply portfolio to the GLNG facility that has shipped six liquefied natural gas cargoes since the first loading in October.
After ramp-up, GLNG’s train 1 already produced above its nameplate capacity, Duke said, adding that the commissioning work on the second LNG train commenced and first liquefied natural gas is expected in the second quarter 2016.
Partners in the GLNG project are Santos (30 percent), Petronas (27.5 percent), Total (27.5 percent) and Kogas (15 percent).
