Australia and US to discuss LNG supplies

Jan 14, 2005 01:00 AM

Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane will head to the US and Mexico to build support for Australian LNG.
Mr Macfarlane is keen to talk up Australia's ability to provide cheap and consistent supplies of LNG to the burgeoning North American market. But he faces a major obstacle, with environmentalists opposed to the construction of an offshore LNG receival plant that could take Australian gas.

The Californian Government is considering proposals for a plant, as the only other processing facilities are based on the US east coast.
Mr Macfarlane said apart from the US, two LNG terminals were proposed for Baja California in Mexico.

The minister will meet Mexican Energy Secretary Fernando Elizondo Barragan and sign a memorandum of understanding with the Mexico government.
He will also meet the Californian Cabinet Secretary Terry Tamminen and Secretary of Resources Mike Chrisman, proponents of the LNG terminal, as well as Joint Strike Fighter contractor Northrupp Grumman.
