Aussie LNG exports to China up 16% in May: EnergyQuest

Australia exported 43 cargoes of LNG to China in May, up 16% from 37 cargoes in the same month of last year, energy consultancy EnergyQuest said on June 22.

Exports to Japan stood at 26 cargoes, down on 29 delivered in May 2020. Australia delivered six cargoes to Korea in May, less than the 10 cargoes exported in the same month last year, EnergyQuest said.
