NLNG plant was shut down as reported was mere fabrication – Andy Odeh


The General Manager External Relations and Sustainable Development of the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Limited, Andy Odeh has debunked as mere speculations that the company’s production plant on the Bonny Island in the south-south Niger Delta region was shut down and so was not producing. His reaction was coming on the heels of the report by one of Nigeria’s daily newspapers of August 17 2023 with the caption, “NLNG Prolonged Shutdown Threatens Gas Production.”

While condemning the publication as false, misleading and obliterative of the company’s corporate image, Andy said the NLNG plant has been in operation and producing optimally notwithstanding a declaration of Force Majeure on it.

He said: “NLNG reiterates that operation at its plant on Bonny Island is still active despite a Force Majeure which still subsists due to the unavailability of upstream gas suppliers’ major liquids evacuation pipelines occasioned by sabotage and vandalism.

“The plant continues to produce LNG and LPG commensurate to the feed gas it receives from its upstream gas suppliers. Its cargo loading operation also continues without interruption.

“The latest cargo from the Bonny plant sailed on the 17th Aug 2023 to the St Croix, US, Virgin Islands, carrying 140, 000 M3 of LNG.

“NLNG remains committed to collaborating with key stakeholders to minimize the impact of the consequent gas supply shortage”, Andy Odeh said.
