This represents a rise of almost 13 percent as compared to May last year when Gladstone LNG exports reached 1.49 million mt.

LNG exports from the three terminals totaled 8.16 million mt in the January-May period.

China remained the top destination for Gladstone LNG exports with 928,170 mt imported in May, the data shows.

The rest of the LNG cargoes went to South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia and India.
