Re: Discharge ports, meters per second, cubic meters per second.

Hi @RussellJoseph Sincere apologies for the delay, we've been working on the community sessions. Using the same water for regassification is a process called ‘closed loop.’ Closed loop uses some of the LNG cargo to operate gas-fired boilers that heats the LNG as opposed to seawater. However, this decreases the amount of gas available to the gas network as it uses approximately 1.5% of the total LNG storage. This is equivalent to about one extra full load LNG carrier each year and approxima ...

Re: AGL’s “Community Update” Announcing Delays At Crib Point

Hi RotasQuare, Thank you for your post and sincere apologies for the delay. The change in timing has kept us busy. Yes, the Esperanza does already have closed loop capabilities inbuilt whereas the Giant was going to require modification in order to implement the closed loop system. However, we would have ensured either ship had the capacity to run closed loop and open loop regasification. Apart from this, the Esperanza and the Giant have almost identical configurations. This includes the s ...

Re: agl crib point project

Hi Edith, We understand your concerns about the impact this development may have on the environment. It was not a decision we undertook lightly. We investigated several different sites across Australia, including Crib Point in Victoria, Port Adelaide in South Australia and Port Kembla in New South Wales. The evaluation process considered several factors including access to key gas markets, cost of incremental pipeline transmission, availability of suitable land for onshore facilities, cost of ...

Re: Regarding "gas shortages"

Hi Rai88, Apologies for the delay. We had to escalate this question internally. You’re right, AGL does do its own internal forecasting on the state of the gas market in Eastern Australia as well as rely on other independent external reports. For example: A report by EnergyQuest, released 21st December 2018, identified a major gas shortfall from 2022 in the southern states including Victoria. It also emphasised the need to progress LNG projects to avoid the crisis. The Australian D ...
