BG Group PLC reported that commercial operations have started from Train 2 at its Queensland Curtis LNG (QCLNG) plant. QGC, BG’s Australian subsidiary, has also assumed control of Train 2 from Bechtel Australia, which built the facility.
BG now has full control of both LNG trains and associated facilities at QCLNG. By mid-2016 the integrated project is expected to reach plateau production, producing enough LNG to load a combined ten vessels/month, which is equivalent to exporting 8 million tonnes/year.
Since starting production in December 2014, 71 cargoes have been shipped, BG said.
Train 2 partners are BG, 97.5%, and Tokyo Gas, 2.5%.
