Yemen LNG repairs gas pipeline after sabotage

12.27.2012  | 

The 320-kilometer LNG terminal, most recently hit on December 16, has been repeatedly attacked by suspected al Qaeda-linked militants. Yemen began exporting LNG from the Balhaf terminal in 2009. French group Total has an almost 40% interest in the liquefaction plants.

Yemen LNG Co. has repaired the country's only liquefied-natural-gas pipeline supplying its plants after it was sabotaged earlier this month, a person familiar with the matter said this week.

But the pipeline isn't operational yet, the person told Dow Jones Newswires.

The latest attack, the eighth in a year, hit the 38-inch gas pipeline that links block 18 to the Balhaf terminal on the Gulf of Aden on Dec. 16.

It came only a few weeks after the plants resumed operation following a sabotage in late October.

The 320-kilometer LNG terminal has been repeatedly attacked by suspected al Qaeda-linked militants.

Yemen began exporting LNG from Balhaf in 2009. French group Total has an almost 40% interest in the liquefaction plants.

The $4.5 billion Yemen LNG project has two production trains with a combined capacity of 6.7 million tpy, supplying mainly to Asia, Europe, North America and South America.
