Production at Malaysian gas field to resume full production by August 2019


Dateline 2018-11-26, LNG Industry:

According to Reuters, Petronas has announced that production at the Kebabangan gas field in Sabah is expected to resume working at full capacity by August next year.
This follows disruption that was caused by a gas leak at the related Sabah Sarawak Gas Pipeline in January this year. Reuters reports that repairs have now been completed, but that integrity assurance tests are still being carried out on the 500 km pipeline. These tests are reportedly expected to be completed by July next year.

Reuters quotes Petronas as saying: “The supply disruption, however, did not impact our LNG cargo deliveries to customers.”

According to Reuters, the finance minister of Malaysia recently announced that the nation’s economic growth has been significantly affected by the supply disruption. He reportedly noted that gas exports have been seriously impacted since 2Q18.
