BG Group ships first LNG from QCLNG Train 2 in Australia

 

BG Group plc today announces it has started up and loaded its first LNG from the second production train at the Queensland Curtis LNG (QCLNG) facility in Australia. The first LNG from Train 2 set sail on the Maran Gas Posidonia.

At plateau production, expected mid-2016, both trains at QCLNG will be producing enough LNG to load ten vessels per month combined, exporting around eight million tonnes per year. Since production from the first train commenced in December 2014, 27 cargoes have been shipped.
 
BG Group began commercial operations in May 2015, when control of Train 1 formally transferred to QGC, BG Group’s Australian subsidiary, from the constructor Bechtel Australia. Train 2 commercial operations will begin once a similar commissioning process has been completed.

Helge Lund, Chief Executive of BG Group, commented, "The start-up of QCLNG’s second LNG train is another important operational milestone delivered in line with our plan. The completion of our upstream infrastructure and the two LNG trains are achievements of which BG Group, particularly our team in Australia, can be proud. We have already shipped more than 1.5 million tonnes of LNG from Queensland, and Train 2 will add significant further volumes and flexibility to our LNG shipping and marketing portfolio."
