Malaysia LNG exports hit 4-yr low on pipeline issuesAugust 08, 2018
Malaysia's exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) fell to a four-year low in July as domestic gas pipeline issues plaguing the country since January took their toll, according to industry sources and Thomson Reuters data.
Natural gas supply from the Sabah Oil and Gas terminal to the Petronas LNG Complex in Bintulu was cut in January following a gas leak in the 500 kilometre pipeline which transports gas from Kimanis in Sabah to the Bintulu plant in Sarawak for processing.
While the pipeline has been repaired, Petronas is still awaiting the necessary approval from authorities to resume operations at the pipeline, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters.
The Petronas LNG Complex, which has a capacity of 24 million tonnes per annum (mtpa), comprises three LNG plants owned and operated by Petronas and joint venture companies.
