Shell’s Queensland Curtis LNG project in Australia has exported its 200th cargo since it started producing the chilled fuel in December 2014.

The milestone cargo is being carried onboard the 174,000-cbm newbuild GasLog Gibraltar, Shell’s Australian unit said on Thursday in a brief statement through its social media channels.

The GasLog Gibraltar, which was delivered to its owner GasLog in October, is on a seven-year charter with Shell.

Shell Australia did not reveal the final destination of the LNG cargo.

The QCLNG project is operated by Australia’s coal seam gas (CSG) producer, QGC. QGC was before a unit of BG Group, that was acquired by Hague-based Shell in a $54 billion deal in February.

The QCLNG plant located on Curtis Island off Gladstone produces about 8 million tonnes per year of LNG from two liquefaction trains – enough to load around ten vessels per month.

China’s CNOOC holds 50% equity in Train 1 while Japan’s Tokyo Gas owns a 2.5% stake in Train 2.
