Australia's North West Shelf LNG export plant suffers partial outage

LONDON (Reuters) — Australia’s North West Shelf LNG export plant suffered a partial outage on Friday morning after several production units were taken offline, though at least one is in the process of restarting, trade sources said.

The outage has the potential to lift Asian spot LNG prices in an already tightening market.

One trade source said three production units, or trains, may have been affected, but immediate confirmation was not possible.

The five-train plant can produce 16.3 MMtpy of LNG.

Operator Woodside Petroleum did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.

During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
