Brunei LNG says working to restart compressors

LNG terminal operator Brunei LNG said on Tuesday it is working to restart its onshore compressor plants following an outage on May 20.

“Brunei LNG’s response teams have been activated to safely bring the compressors back into operations,” the company told LNG Prime in an emailed statement.

“Safe restart of the onshore compressor plants is currently on-going and Brunei LNG remains committed to deliver its commitments,” Brunei LNG said.

The 7.2 mtpa Brunei LNG plant in Lumut is one of the world’s oldest LNG export facilities and it achieved its first drop of LNG in October 1972.

Brunei LNG has five trains and three storage tanks, and mainly supplies Japan and other customers in Asia.

GIIGNL’s data shows that Brunei LNG had long-term contracts with Jera, Osaka Gas, Tokyo Gas (3.4 mtpa), Petronas (0.9 mtpa), and Shell (0.8 mtpa). These contracts were signed for the 2013-2023 period.

According to Brunei LNG’s website, it has delivered more than 7,500 cargoes, or more than 266 million tonnes, to its customers up to date via LNG vessels owned by Brunei Gas Carriers.

The government of Brunei holds a 50 percent stake in Brunei LNG, while UK-based LNG giant Shell and Japan’s trader Mitsubishi have a 25 percent share, each.
