FACTBOX-Australia's five proposed LNG import terminals

MELBOURNE, Nov 4 (Reuters) - Australian Industrial Energy (AIE) applied in October to the New South Wales state government to modify the approval for its Port Kembla LNG import terminal to allow more frequent cargo arrivals during the winter months. The decision to modify the project has slowed plans for AIE, which had hoped to make a final investment decision on the project in mid-2019. The Japanese-backed consortium now has no target date for signing off on the project.
