Petronas declares force majeure on gas supply to MLNG Dua
Malaysian state-owned Petronas has declared force majeure on gas supply to MLNG Dua due to a pipeline leak caused by soil movement at the vicinity of KP201, Sabah-Sarawak gas pipeline (SSGP) that occurred on September 21, the company said on October 8.
This has impacted the supply of gas to MLNG Dua’s production facility at Petronas LNG complex (PLC) in Bintulu, Sarawak.
The company said that force majeure affects the supply of gas to MLNG Dua’s production facility only, while the other LNG production facilities within the PLC continue to operate as planned.
“Petronas is mindful that this incident has impacted its delivery commitments to some of its contracted LNG buyers and it is in discussions to identify suitable mitigation efforts,” it said.
The state-owned company said it is currently conducting a comprehensive evaluation of the SSGP to ensure the integrity and safety of the pipeline.
