THE LNG ship Seri Bakti arrived at the Santos GLNG site at Curtis Island this morning.

The ship entered Gladstone Harbour at around 7:30am and was alongside the Santos GLNG jetty by around 9am.

The ship loading systems will undergo testing, before it delivers Santos GLNG's first LNG cargo to South Korea in coming weeks.
