Sabah-Sarawak Gas Pipeline Shit for Maintenance

May 21, 2019

Malaysia's state oil and gas company Petroliam Nasional Bhd said on Tuesday it has shut the Sabah-Sarawak gas pipeline that feeds gas to its liquefied natural gas (LNG) complex at Bintulu in the state of Sarawak as part of maintenance work.

Operations will resume when the maintenance work is completed, said Petronas, as the company is popularly known, in a statement, without specifying how long works would take.

"LNG supply from Petronas LNG Complex is not impacted as any shortfall of gas supply from the Sabah-Sarawak gas pipeline shall be made up with the gas supply from other fields in offshore Sarawak during this period," the company said.

Reuters reported last week that Petronas had temporarily shut down the pipeline for repairs that will take about two months, slowing down production at its Bintulu complex and potentially curbing spot LNG exports from Malaysia.

Petronas is the sole manager of Malaysia's oil and gas reserves, and is the world's third-biggest LNG exporter after Qatar and Australia.
