We Are Still Operating, NLNG Denies Shutting Down Operations Over Flood
Fred Omotara, Lagos
The Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) Limited has denied reports that it has shut down it’s operations due to flood at it’s facilities.
In a statement on its social media handles on Friday, the company stated that it’s plant is in operation, though at a limited capacity, due to reduced gas supply from some of its upstream gas suppliers.
According to the statement, “Our attention has been brought to media reports, following the issuance of a statement declaring Force Majeure on Monday 17th October 2022, that operations at its facilities have been shut down due to flood.
“To correct some misinformation on the declaration, we would like to clarify:
“The Company’s plant is in operation though at a limited capacity, due to reduced gas supply from some of its upstream gas suppliers.
“None of NLNG’s assets on Bonny Island or in any of its host communities are impacted by the flood. The Force Majeure is as a consequence of a similar notice by Upstream Gas Suppliers due to the impact of flood in their production facilities.
“NLNG is working with all critical stakeholders on mitigating the impact on product deliveries.
“NLNG continues to supply LPG to the domestic market for now from the limited production.
“We continue to monitor the situation with Upstream Gas Suppliers and are evaluating the impact of the flood on its business.”
