Production from PNG LNG project reaches full capacity

The ExxonMobil Corp.-led Papua New Guinea LNG (PNG LNG) project is now producing at full capacity.

The project, that takes gas from several fields in the Southern Highlands of Papua New Guinea and pipes it to an LNG facility on the south coast near Port Moresby, has been ramping up since the first LNG shipment left for Tokyo Electric Power Co. on board Spirit of Hela carrier in May (OGJ Online, May 15, 2014).

The two-train facility has a production capacity of 6.9 million tonnes/year of LNG.

The project fields are expected to produce more than 9 tcf of gas during the project’s estimated 30 years of operations.

LNG will be supplied to four major customers in the Asian region: China Petroleum & Chemical (Sinopec), Tokyo Electric Power, Osaka Gas, and CPC Corp. of Taiwan.
