The dramatic advance of Australia’s LNG industry

Since the first Australian LNG shipment left the two-train North West Shelf project on its way to Tokyo in 1989, the Australian LNG industry has grown to the point where there are now six LNG projects in operation, encompassing 13 trains and 49.5 million tonnes per annum capacity. Not only has the North West Shelf expanded to five trains but Australia now also has five other producing projects, the Darwin, Pluto QCLNG, GLNG and APLNG projects.

A further four new LNG projects are being constructed in Australia – Wheatstone, Gorgon, Icythys, and Prelude. Several other LNG projects are under consideration.

Currently Australia is the world’s third largest LNG exporter. However with abundant offshore and onshore petroleum reserves being developed, Australia’s reputation as a world-class LNG producer and its proximity to key LNG demand centres in the Asia Pacific, Australia is on track to become one of the leading LNG producers in the world by the end of the decade.

History of the LNGX series

Since 1968 the LNG X series has been holding an LNG conference and exhibition every three years, alternating between exporting and importing countries. The LNG X series has grown into the most important and significant global LNG event with its key aim to conduct a technical and commercial event for the rapidly growing LNG industry.

The host organisations are the International Gas Union (IGU), the Gas Technology Institute (GTI) and the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR).

In April 2016 the Australian Gas Industry Trust will host the eighteenth event LNG 18 in Perth, Western Australia, on behalf of Australia as an LNG exporting country.
