Australia Pacific LNG
Australia Pacific LNG is a joint venture between ConocoPhillips (37.5%), Origin Energy (37.5%), and Sinopec (25%) and shipped its first LNG cargo in January 2016 after nearly five years of development and construction.
Australia Pacific LNG is the largest producer of natural gas sourced from coal seams in eastern Australia, supplying Australian customers with natural gas and customers in Asia with liquefied natural gas (LNG) from its Curtis Island, Gladstone export facility. Australia Pacific LNG is a major supplier to Queensland’s domestic gas market, supplying many Gladstone industrial customers with gas.
Origin Energy operates Australia Pacific LNG’s gas fields, upstream production and pipeline system, while ConocoPhillips operates the downstream LNG export facility and the LNG export sales business.
The LNG facility employs state-of-the-art engineering and environmental technology and, wherever possible, utilises local and regional resources. The facility has two processing trains, each with the nameplate production capacity of 4.5mpta using the ConocoPhillips’ Optimised Cascade Process® LNG liquefaction technology.
There are two export offtake agreements in place for the LNG - 7.6mtpa to JV partner Sinopec, and 1mtpa to Kansai Electric, both for 20 years.
ConocoPhillips, along with the shareholders of Australia Pacific LNG, value a constructive and trusted relationship with their local and regional communities, landowners and stakeholders from all levels of Government. Australia Pacific LNG has invested more than $41 million into community support programs. Community investment in long-term sustainable programs is an on-going priority for ConocoPhillips.
