Shell to shut Curtis Island LNG export plant for maintenance in October

(World LNG News, 14 Jul 2017)


The exact timing of the shutdown has not been revealed by QGC, Shell’s unit operating the two two-train LNG export facility. QGC, Australian coal seam gas (CSG) producer became part of Shell when the Anglo-Dutch giant acquired BG Group in a $54 billion deal in February last year. The QCLNG plant located on Curtis Island off Gladstone produces about 8 million tons per year of LNG, enough to load around ten vessels per month. China’s CNOOC holds 50 percent equity in Train 1 while Japan’s Tokyo Gas owns a 2.5 percent stake in Train 2.
