Adelaide-based Santos has said it will take a A$1.05 billion (US$811 million) writedown on its Gladstone LNG project because of rising prices for third-party gas supplies and a slower-than-expected ramp-up of its own equity gas output.
The company already took a A$565 million impairment charge against the plant last year.
"We are seeing the effects of ongoing constraints on capital expenditure and a softer LNG market," Kevin Gallagher, chief executive and managing director, said in a statement.
