The fourth seminar of the six-part series on the natural gas supply chain, will examine the role that producing and exporting liquified natural gas (LNG) plays in the Australian natural gas supply chain. It will specifically describe the well-head to ship process of producing and exporting LNG; the history and locations of LNG facilities in Australia; the parts and functions of LNG trains; and the physical coordination between export and domestic supply chains. Reference will be made to international developments and how these might impact on Australia.
