The Gladstone LNG, Australia Pacific LNG and Queensland Curtis LNG projects’ export volumes rose to a record 5.4 million tonnes during the December quarter. Queensland Resources Council CEO Ian Macfarlane says the oil and gas industry contributed $8.2bn to the economy in 2017-18. Meanwhile, Saul Kavonic of Credit Suisse says declining gas production in Bass Strait has been the key contributor to rising gas prices on the east coast, and that prices would have risen much more if the three Queensland LNG projects did not sell gas into the domestic market.
