MELBOURNE, Apr. 4 -- The North West Shelf Joint Venture partners have taken delivery of the first of three Chinese-built LNG carriers that will transport LNG from the Burrup Peninsula plant to Dapeng receiving terminal in Guandong Province, China.

The Dapeng Sun carrier was delivered at Hudong-Zhonghua shipyard in Shnaghai by Yue Peng LNG Shipping.

The second vessel, Dapeng Moon, will be completed during the third quarter. Each of the JV companies has 5% equity in Yue Peng LNG.

The NWS group's 25-year supply deal with the Guangdong consortium buyer was signed in 2002 for 3.3 million tonnes/year of LNG to Dapeng on a fob basis, and the agreement became effective in December 2004.

Separately, in another NWS project, Woodside Petroleum Ltd. awarded a $200 million (Aus.) contract to a JV of Australian engineering group Clough Ltd., Perth, and Interbeton, the Netherlands, to construct the LNG jetty for the Pluto LNG project on the Burrup Peninsula.

The 300 m-long jetty will be completed by yearend 2009.
