NIGERIA LNG UNABLE TO HONOUR DELIVERIES TO EUROPE IN SEPTEMBER.

The Nigerian gas company Nigeria LNG (NLNG) will not be able to honour deliveries of liquid natural gas to Europe in September owing to a pipeline fire. NLNG, which is a subsidiary of the state company NNPC, the Anglo-Dutch group Royal Dutch Shell, the Italian Agip group and France's Total, began operating at Bonny, south Nigeria, in October 1999. It produces 5.9 million tonnes a year. Production has been cut by two thirds with just one of three gas pipelines operational. A leak in the system caused a fire on August 23 which engineers are still struggling to put out. The incident did not cause any injuries and the plant is expected to resume full production within three weeks once repairs are completed.
