The New South Wales government is to give ‘critical status’ to a second proposed LNG import terminal for that state on 14 August. The $590 million gas plant on Newcastle’s Kooragang Island is being developed by South Korean company EPIK, and was proposed in December 2018. The first NSW LNG import terminal to be awarded ‘critical status’ is the Andrew Forrest-backed project at Port Kembla, which is due to become operational in late 2020. The EPIK terminal could be operational by 2022-23, and has the potential to supply up to 80 per cent of NSW’s gas needs.
