Background

Fishermans Landing LNG Terminal was a proposed LNG terminal in Queensland, Australia. The project is proposed by Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd. (LNGL).[1]

LNGL secured a 24-hectare site on the mainland via a 20-year lease from Gladstone Ports Corp. Ltd. with two 5-year extension options. The site was directly opposite the three existing LNG plants on Curtis Island and the company planned an initial development based on two trains of 1.5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) each. LNGL had hopes of eventually moving up to four trains for a total capacity of 7 mtpa.[2]

In May 2017, Perth-based Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd. (LNGL) announced plans to abandon the Fishermans Landing LNG project. After a number of years without any success in securing the long-term gas supplies needed to proceed with construction, LNGL has decided to no longer fund the costs associated with maintaining the site and close the project down.[2]

As of 2017, Australia is the second largest LNG exporter after Qatar. The country exports almost 44 million tons a year.[3]
