Will Australia start importing LNG, or just transporting supplies from NWA/NT to NSW??

US firms are joining forces in the LNG market

The world’s biggest headache or FLNG?:

It is not only a question of how much LNG can be exported by US or other supplies, but the capability of European countries to receive and store LNG. Germany does not have any such facilities at the moment;

PS> LNG also need to be re-gasified before it can be distributed to consumers through the existing pipeline network, thus replace the Russian dry gas supply.

Constrution started on the Wilhelmshaven Terminal:

Another FLNG Terminal will be built at Brunsbuttel:

Not only Germany is looking at additional LNG import capabilities:

LNG bunkering is now well established in ARA region.
Titan has expanded its controlled fleet with the charter of a fifth vessel in a long-term agreement with Elenger. Titan will supply LNG and LBM with the Optimus, an LBV with a capacity of 6,000 cbm, which will operate under Titan’s license in the ARA and Zeebrugge ports.
The OPTIMUS arrived at the Port of Amsterdam on July 6th, giving Titan the opportunity to meet the crew and prepare them for bunkering in the ARA region:

The addition of the Optimus will serve the Titan fleet alongside its other chartered and owned vessels such as FLEXFUELER 001, FLEXFUELER 002, GREEN ZEEBRUGGE, and CORAL FRASERI, all of which can deliver LNG and LBM bunker stems going forward.
