Australia's APLNG plans plant maintenance in Sept
SINGAPORE, (Reuters) - The Australia Pacific liquefied natural gas (APLNG) plant on Curtis Island off the east coast will undergo a partial maintenance in September, the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) said in a notice.
APLNG, co-owned by ConocoPhillips, Origin Energy and China’s Sinopec, is a 9 million-tonne-a-year project.
The maintenance will affect half of a train on Sept. 10, one train over Sept. 11 to 13 and half a train over Sept. 14 to 17, AEMO said.

The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported in April that the US set records for natural gas production in 2017.

Since market reforms first started in 1978, China has shifted from a centrally planned economy to a market-based economy, experiencing rapid economic and social development.
Russia aims to ally with Qatar in LNG competition with Australia and other LNG-exporting majors over the coming years.
Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants
Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
•Maximize NGL production through improved availability and optimized process conditions
•Improve compositional control to operate closer to product specifications
