Yemen LNG Output Resumes As Crude Export Pipeline Is Targeted

Yemen LNG has restarted operations at its Balhaf liquefaction plant following last month’s bombing of its 38-inch feeder pipeline.

Total-led Yemen LNG (YLNG) has resumed operations at its 6.7mn tons/year Balhaf liquefaction plant on the Gulf of Aden, some ten days after being forced to shut in production following a militant attack on its 320km 38-inch feeder pipeline. “Yemen LNG confirms that its pipeline has been repaired and that the LNG plant has been running since the last days of August,” the company said on 1 September. YLNG did not reveal how many LNG loadings had been cancelled as a result of the attacks, and did not respond to requests for information by MEES press time.
