Shell LNG plant in Queensland, Australia to undergo maintenance
LONDON (Reuters) — Royal Dutch Shell’s Queensland Curtis LNG production plant will undergo a partial maintenance outage on May 7–27, 2018, the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) said in a notice on Friday.
The 8.5 MMtpy capacity liquefaction plant has two production units, or trains.
The maintenance will affect more than one half of a train but not more than one full train, AEMO said in the note.
LNG producers such as Shell voluntarily submit information on production outages to the AEMO. The guidance is subject to change.

In the business of hydrocarbon production, accurate accounting of produced fluids and gases is critical from a process control, management and fiscal perspective.
The US East Coast will send out its first LNG exports in early 2018 as Dominion Energy’s Cove Point LNG export facility in Lusby, Maryland becomes operational.
Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants
Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
•Maximize NGL production through improved availability and optimized process conditions
•Improve compositional control to operate closer to product specifications
