High strength rates have put a damper on driving (though you would not consider it with the crowds at Kalbarri – a preferred Western Australian vacation spot about 6.5 hours’ travel from Perth), amplified selling prices on our lettuce and other groceries, and normally place a frown on faces – unless of course you’re an executive with our LNG producers, that is.
In its ‘Australian LNG Monthly’ report for June 2022, EnergyQuest famous that the sector attained record revenues of $7.18bn in June, up from $6.38bn just a month prior to and a whopping 135% up from June 2021.
This file earnings was accompanied by history exports totalling 7.31Mt of the supercooled gas, up from 6.91Mt in May.
And in a apparent display of West Australian energy, initiatives on this facet of the continent exported 79 cargoes of LNG totalling a record 5.5Mt, up from 5Mt in Might, even though the East Coastline stumbled with just 27 cargoes totalling 1.8Mt.
Portion of that was thanks to utilisation with the WA jobs operating at 107% of nameplate capability when those people in Gladstone, Queensland, managed a paltry 84%.
It definitely did not support that coal seam gasoline manufacturing operated by LNG exporters fell from 117.1 petajoules in Could to 107.6PJ in June.
Far more broadly, the electrical power consultancy believed that Australian LNG exports in the 12 months to 30 June 2022 hit a report of 82.6Mt, a very good deal greater than the 77.3Mt exported in the previous economical calendar year.
China also missing its position as the prime location for our fuel with 25Mt exported in FY2022, down from 28.3Mt in FY2021.
