Shell QGC Ships 500th LNG Cargo from Curtis Island
Shell’s QGC business, along with its joint venture partners CNOOC and Tokyo Gas (TOG.BE), have shipped the 500th cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its LNG plant on Curtis Island, Queensland.
The cargo will be delivered by Gladstone’s namesake vessel, the GasLog (GLOG) Gladstone, Shell said.
Shell’s QGC Vice President East, Tony Nunan said: “The 500th LNG cargo safely completed loading today from our plant on Curtis Island, five years since the first cargo set sail.
“It takes commitment and collaboration to safely and efficiently develop, process and supply gas to both domestic and international markets. Everyone involved should be very proud of the work taken to reach this important milestone.
“Thanks goes to our Joint Venture Partners CNOOC and Tokyo Gas, who believed in the development of a new local industry via a sizable investment and ongoing support.”
Zoe Yujnovich, Chairman Shell Australia said: “Producing 500 cargoes is a significant achievement, not just for Shell’s QGC business, but for the Gladstone community and our contractors and suppliers who work alongside us to safely deliver cleaner energy.
“This milestone shows our commitment to be here for the long-term as a safe and reliable supplier of natural gas,” he added.
