    Growth in LNG trade was driven in part by new liquefaction capacity commissioned in Australia, the U.S. and Russia, collectively adding 3.4 Bcf/d of liquefaction capacity. The world’s first floating liquefaction plant, Malaysia’s PFLNG Satu (0.2 Bcf/d capacity), was also commissioned in 2017. Since 2013, the U.S. and Australia have added a combined 9.67 Bcf/d of new liquefaction capacity, with another 8.3 Bcf/d expected to be completed by 2020. Including additions in the U.S. and Australia, liquefaction projects currently under construction are projected to increase global liquefaction capacity by 13.5 Bcf/d by 2022.

    The U.S. is expected to add 6.05 Bcf/d of new liquefaction capacity by 2021, in addition to 3.5 Bcf/d already in operation at Sabine Pass (LA) and Cove Point (MD). This year the Elba Island (GA) liquefaction project is expected to commission the first six of 10 small modular liquefaction units, or trains, with a combined capacity of 0.2 Bcf/d. New trains at Cameron (LA), Freeport (TX), and Corpus Christi (TX), all along the U.S. Gulf Coast, are expected to be commissioned in the next three years.

      Will Owen, Assistant Editor LNG Industry, 12 April 2019 - Woodside driving development of domestic LNG market

      The Woodside-operated Pluto LNG project has opened its new LNG truck loading facility, a key milestone towards development of a local LNG market for remote power generation and transport fuels. The Premier of Western Australia, the Hon. Mark McGowan MLA, officially opened the facility at a ceremony in Karratha.

      The facility will initially be able to deliver seven LNG truck loadings per day, each one transporting the equivalent of more than 80 000 litres of diesel. Woodside’s initial focus is on supplying trucked LNG to mining operations and communities in the Pilbara, Kimberley and elsewhere in WA for power generation. Trucked LNG will also be used to supply coastal marine vessels, including the LNG-powered Siem Thiima which joined Woodside’s fleet in 2017.

      Around three billion litres of diesel are imported into the Pilbara every year, mainly for the mining industry. In addition, the ships exporting iron ore to international markets from the Pilbara consume approximately five billion litres of heavy fuel oil annually.

      Ms O’Neill thanked the Pluto Joint Venture participants Kansai Electric and Tokyo Gas, downstream joint venture partner EDL Energy, trucking partner Linfox and foundation customer Sheffield Resources for their support in bringing the project to completion.
