Darwin LNG Shipment Delayed

Wednesday, February 08, 2006
The first shipment of liquefied natural gas from Darwin has hit a snag, with the tanker delayed in port for several days. The Kotowaka Maru arrived at ConocoPhillip's Wickham Point plant in Darwin early last Wednesday to load the first cargo from Australia's second LNG export project. The shipment was due to leave Darwin within two days, but the 125,000 cubic meter carrier still remained in the port last night. About 3 million tons of LNG, drawn from the Bayu Undan gas fields in the Timor Sea, have been contracted each year to Tokyo Electric and Tokyo Gas for 17 years. LNG gas carriers are due to arrive in Darwin every seven to 10 days, with each load initially expected to take 10-12 hours.
