300th LNG cargo
Angola LNG’s Sonangol Etosha vessel berthed at Soyo terminal on 23rd July to load the project’s 300th LNG cargo.
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.
It is expected that this work will continue into next year, with the plant anticipated to restart in mid 2015.
Angola LNG’s primary responsibility remains safety of the plant and its people; and addressing issues to ensure that the plant can restart and ramp up.
