A roundup of news and commentary from NGI’s LNG Insight

  • BP plc affiliate has issued force majeure notice to Golar LNG Ltd. indicating it’s unable to take delivery of a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) unit on time because of Covid-19 outbreak.

 

  • BP estimates that connection of the FLNG unit, scheduled for 2022, could be delayed by one year. Vessel would be located offshore West Africa and produce 2.5 million metric tons/year from the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim project.

 

  • Golar has asked BP to “clarify how a force majeure event discovered as recently as the end of March 2020 could immediately impact the schedule by an estimated one year.”

 

  • Genscape Inc.: Feed gas deliveries to U.S. LNG terminals fell to a three-week low of 7.6 Bcf/d on Monday. Decline was mainly result of 400 MMcf/d drop to Corpus Christi LNG and train outage at Sabine Pass, where feed gas volumes “have been stuck” at the 3.1 Bcf/d level in recent days.
