BG loads first cargo at second QCLNG train
LNG player BG has started up and loaded its first liquefied natural gas from the second production train at the Curtis Island facility in Australia.
The first LNG from Train 2 set sail on the Maran Gas Posidonia, the company informed in a statement.
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 began commercial operations in May 2015, when control of Train 1 formally transferred to QGC, BG’s Australian unit, from the constructor Bechtel Australia. Train 2 commercial operations will begin once a similar commissioning process has been completed, BG said.
