LNG industry predicted royalties of up to $0.5b by 2018-19
THE Queensland Government is projecting total petroleum royalties, mostly from LNG, of over $0.5 billion by 2018-19, an EnergyQuest report has revealed.
The EnergyQuest quarterly report, released this month, on Australian oil and gas reserves has brought together all of the statistics for the June quarter of 2015 and the 2014 - 15 year.
It found that Australian's east coast gas market is one of the few energy markets in the world without substantial over-capacity.
In Gladstone, as of mid-August QCLNG had shipped 36 cargoes since the first cargo in January 2015.
They estimated that the cargoes constitutes 2.4 Mt of LNG from production of 150 PJ of natural gas.
Meanwhile, GLNG is close to shipping its first LNG cargo following the introduction of feed gas into Train 1 at the end of August.
