….NLNG Plant Not Shut Down…..
………by Ben Ndubuwa…..
The Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) has said that it has come to it’s notice in a report on 17th August 2023 that the company has been shut down
The report titled “NLNG prolonged shutdown threatens gas production,” was published in one of the national newspapers. NLNG is therefore stating that the report is false and misleading.
NLNG reiterates that operation at its plant on Bonny Island is still active despite a Force Majeure, which still subsists due to the unavailability of upstream gas suppliers’ major liquids evacuation pipelines occasioned by sabotage and vandalism.
NLNG said that it’s plant will continues to produce LNG and LPG commensurate to the feed gas it receives from its upstream gas suppliers. Its cargo loading operation also continues without interruption. The latest cargo from the Bonny plant sailed on 17th August 2023 to the St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, carrying 140,000 M3 of LNG.
“NLNG remains committed to collaborating with key stakeholders to minimise the impact of the consequent gas supply shortage” Andy Odeh, General Manager, External Relations and Sustainable Development said.
