Australia Pacific LNG has begun liquefied natural gas (LNG) production from its LNG facility on Curtis Island (QLD).
Australia Pacific LNG CEO, Page Maxson, said, “The production of first LNG marks a successful commissioning and start-up phase of the LNG facility by downstream operator ConocoPhillips and contractor Bechtel.
“As we continue to cool down the facility and produce LNG, we are well placed to export our first LNG cargo in coming weeks.”
The gas being supplied to the LNG facility comes from Australia Pacific LNG’s gas fields in the Surat and Bowen basins, which are operated by Origin Energy.
All gas wells required to supply the first LNG train are ready for production and supporting infrastructure are complete.
