Shell QGC reaches LNG cargo milestone

Shell QGC reaches LNG cargo milestone

Shell’s QGC business has marked the 500th cargo of LNG from its plant on Curtis Island.

The cargo will be delivered by the Gaslog Gladstone.

“The 500th LNG cargo safely completed loading today (October 3) from our plant on Curtis Island, five years since the first cargo set sail,” Shell QGC vice-president east Tony Nunan said.

“It takes commitment and collaboration to safely and efficiently develop, process and supply gas to both domestic and international markets. Everyone involved should be very proud of the work taken to reach this important milestone.

“Thanks goes to our joint venture Partners CNOOC and Tokyo Gas, who believed in the development of a new local industry via a sizeable investment and ongoing support.”

Shell Australia chair Zoe Yujnovich described producing 500 cargoes as a significant achievement, not just for Shell’s QGC business, but for the Gladstone community and the company’s contractors and suppliers.

“This milestone shows our commitment to be here for the long-term as a safe and reliable supplier of natural gas,” she said.
