Bulk cargo carrier "Methane Spirit" has left Gladstone with the first shipment from Origin Energy’s Australia Pacific LNG project in Queensland. The first shipment had been slated for late December 2015, but the tanker eventually left Curtis Island on 9 January 2016. The majority of gas from the $A24.7bn project has been bought by Sinopec, while other customers include Kansai Electric. APLNG was the last of the three Gladstone LNG projects to commence production.
