The Australian Pacific LNG (APLNG) facility will undergo scheduled maintenance operations in July to September, according to the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO).
Maintenance works on half of the train will be undertaken from July 17 to July 22, followed by two similar outages on August 21-26 and September 11-17.
The AEMO notice states that the shutdown will affect half of the train’s capacity, during each window.
The APLNG Project is a joint venture between Origin Energy, ConocoPhillips and Sinopec, and is a two-train CSG-to-LNG project utilising Origin’s Queensland CSG reserves and resources.
Origin is the upstream CSG operator and is responsible for construction and operation of the project’s gas fields and main gas transmission pipeline.
ConocoPhillips will be the downstream LNG operator and is responsible for the construction and operation of the project’s LNG facility.
The project successfully exported its first cargo of LNG in January 2016.
