Yemen restarts LNG exports after September blast

(MENAFN) Yemen LNG, the Yemeni liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal run by French Total resumed LNG exports this week, Reuters reported. Operations at the terminal came back online after being forced to shut when its feed pipeline was blown up in late September. According to ship tracking data by Reuters, the terminal received Korean LNG tanker the K. Mugungwha after the laden Provalys tanker set sail from the Gulf of Aden facility, direction to India. Yemen's oil and gas pipelines have been repeatedly sabotaged since anti-government protests created a power vacuum in 2011 that armed groups have exploited to cause fuel shortages and slash export earnings for the impoverished country. Yemen LNG, which opened in 2009, has the capacity to supply up to 6.7 million tonnes annually and delivers LNG, gas cooled to liquid for export by ship, under long term contracts to GDF Suez, Total and Korea Gas Corp.
