The Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association (APPEA) has hailed the first cargo from the second train at Australia Pacific LNG’s export terminal as a “significant milestone” for the LNG industry in Queensland, Australia.

Dr Malcolm Roberts, APPEA Chief Executive, said: “Australia Pacific LNG, all its employees and contractors are to be congratulated on delivering a first class world project professionally and safely.”

“Six trains are now fully operational on Curtis Island off Gladstone following unprecedented investment in world-first projects that are exporting a cleaner energy source to the world.

“They form part of a bigger $200 billion investment in new LNG projects which will soon see Australia become the world’s leading exporter of LNG.”
