Queensland LNG watching

The BG LNG Carrier Methane Rita Andrea started loading at Gladstone on 28 December, the first Queensland LNG cargo. The upstream fields Berwyndale South, Kenya, Ruby Jo and Bellevue are doing more than 500 TJ/d currently so if all is going well we should see the Rita Andrea depart in the next few days, to be followed by the Methane Mickie Harper, which arrived off Gladstone over the weekend. Each carrier has capacity of around 65,000 tonnes of LNG (around 3.5 PJ of natural gas).
