Shell’s Curtis Island liquefied natural gas (LNG) export plant located near Gladstone in Queensland, Australia will shut down for planned maintenance in May.

The two-train 8.5 mtpa liquefaction plant will undergo partial maintenance on May 7-27, the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) said on Friday.

The scope of the production shutdown will be “greater than one half of a train, but not greater than one LNG train,” AEMO said.

The QCLNG facility is operated by QGC that became part of Shell when the Hague-based company acquired BG Group in February last year.
