Report summary

Australia’s three Coal Seam Gas-to-LNG projects are the largest unconventional gas projects outside of North America, with a capital investment of over US$60 billion. First LNG is expected by year-end, and will signal the end of the first stage in what has been a difficult journey to date. A number of primary issues remain: The logistical challenge of ramping-up to peak production; additional high-quality 2P reserves may be required; and further cost overruns remain an ongoing risk.
