    中国石化新闻网讯 据管道新闻网8月17日消息称,周一,日本三井物产公司获得了西澳大利亚州政府的豁免权,可以从一个新的陆上气田出口天然气,此举旨在加快启动该项目,并帮助该州从新冠疫情的影响中恢复过来。

    西澳大利亚州表示,将禁止所有陆上天然气出口,以压低该州的天然气价格,有效地排除了西到东的输气管道,以帮助该国的东部各州克服迫在眉睫的天然气供应紧缩危机。

    然而,该州表示,将允许三井的Waitsia Stage二期项目的一半天然气“在短时间内”通过西北大陆架液化天然气厂以液化天然气的形式出口,以帮助启动该项目。

    州总理马克·麦高恩在一份声明中说:“一旦获得批准,它将为该地区和该州提供急需的工作、特许权使用费和经济刺激措施。”

    Waitsia是澳大利亚过去40年发现的五大陆上天然气资源之一。分析师估计,Waitsia每年将出口150万吨液化天然气,为期约七年。

    Japan's Mitsui Cleared to Export Gas from West Australian Project

    Japan's Mitsui & Co won an exemption from the Western Australian government on Monday to export gas from a new onshore field, in a push to jump start the project and help the state's recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

    Western Australia said it would ban all exports of onshore gas in a bid to hold down gas prices in the state, effectively ruling out a west-to-east pipeline to help the country's eastern states overcome a looming gas supply crunch.

    However the state said it would allow half the gas from Mitsui's Waitsia Stage 2 project to be exported as LNG through the North West Shelf LNG plant "for a short period of time", to help get the project started.

    "Once sanctioned, it will provide urgently needed jobs, royalties and economic stimulus for the region and the State," state premier Mark McGowan said in a statement.

    Analysts estimated Waitsia, one of Australia's five largest onshore gas discoveries over the past 40 years, would export 1.5 million tonnes a year of LNG for about seven years.
