APLNG to share infrastructure and secure additional gas supply to diversify portfolio

An agreement has been reached on long term infrastructure sharing arrangements between Australia Pacific LNG and the QCLNG project, with Australia Pacific LNG also agreeing to secure additional gas supplies.


Under the tolling agreements, the QCLNG project will be able to transport and process gas and water from the Arrow Energy Surat Basin fields using available capacity in existing Australia Pacific LNG-QCLNG joint infrastructure. The infrastructure sharing arrangements will commence from 2020 and continue until 2035, with options to extend to the end of 2049.
In addition, Australia Pacific LNG has taken the opportunity to secure up to 350 PJ of gas from the QCLNG project. The agreement to buy gas from the QCLNG project at an oil-linked price over 10 years from 2024 will diversify and strengthen Australia Pacific LNG’s gas portfolio.
These arrangements are subject to Arrow Energy taking certain final investment decisions in connection with the development of its Surat Basin fields.


Australia Pacific LNG is Queensland’s largest LNG project, and one of the biggest gas suppliers to the domestic market. In 2018, Australia Pacific LNG supplied close to 30 per cent of total east coast gas demand.


Australia Pacific LNG CEO Warwick King said, “We are very pleased to work collaboratively with QCLNG, paving the way for the development of significant new gas supplies in Queensland.
“Australia Pacific LNG has taken the opportunity to grow and diversify our gas portfolio, while the tolling agreements with QCLNG allows us to maximise value from our investment in existing infrastructure.


“These arrangements demonstrate the industry’s determination to develop more gas for the market, in the most efficient way possible so we can keep costs down.
“Working together and using existing infrastructure will not only enable lower cost development of new gas supplies, it will also minimise impacts on landholders and local communities by avoiding duplication of infrastructure,” Mr King said.

Regional Focus: Challenges of scaling up Africa’s LNG production
-Shem Oirere
Several gas projects are underway in Africa, but they continue to be constrained by inadequate infrastructure, slow finance mobilization, lack of security and uncertainty over hydrocarbon regulations that are casting doubt on the outcome of the continent’s drive to meet its anticipated 128% gas demand increase by 2040.


GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium

The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.

During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
