Angola LNG plant at Soyo

The Chevron-lead Angola LNG export project will not resume production until mid-2015 following a pipeline rupture that forced the plant to shut down, according to a spokesman from the project.

“Following investigation into the incident that took place at the plant in Soyo on 10 April 2014, Angola LNG will pull forward a planned shutdown to allow its contractor Bechtel to both correct items from the incident and – in parallel – address plant capacity issues,” the spokesman said.

He added that the anticipated restart date for the plant is be mid-2015.
