Nigeria LNG declares force majeure due to flooding

LAGOS, Oct 17 (Reuters) - Nigeria LNG has declared force majeure due to widespread flooding that has disrupted supply, a spokesperson said on Monday.

The company said all of its upstream gas suppliers had declared force majeure, forcing it to make the declaration as well.

"The notice by the gas suppliers was a result of high flood water levels in their operational areas, leading to a shut-in of gas production which has caused significant disruption of gas supply to NLNG," spokesperson Andy Odeh said. (Reporting By Libby George; Editing by Jan Harvey)
