The company took in a total of $316.4 million in the quarter.

This was the first quarter the investment in the LNG plant had resulted in revenue with the first shipment sent on January 9.

Since then 11 cargoes were loaded and shipped in the quarter, of which eight went to one of the owners of APLNG, Sinopec.

This improvement has made the company increase its forecast revenue from $30-$80 million to $100-$150 million.
