Shell: Arrow LNG Project on Track, Australia
Royal Dutch Shell is continuing with its plan to build an LNG terminal on Curtis island, near Gladstone, despite reports of rising costs, Reuters reported, citing Shell Australia chairwoman Ann Pickard.
“”Obviously Shell has its own numbers, Arrow has its numbers, and PetroChina, our 50 percent partner, have their own numbers. From a Shell perspective, the project looks fine to me, but we are pretty conservative on our numbers. I don’t see any blowout or increases,” she told an oil and gas industry conference in Adelaide.
Formerly known as the Shell Australia LNG Project, the proposed Arrow LNG Plant Project on Curtis Island will be supplied with coal seam gas from Arrow’s reserves located in the Surat Basin in south east Queensland and the
The liquefaction facility will produce up to 18 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) of LNG, and includes the phased construction of up to four trains or processing plants on its Curtis Island site.
Stage 1 includes the construction of two trains of around 4mtpa of LNG each on the Arrow site behind Boatshed Point.
