Yemen LNG says glitches delay first cargo

Dubai, July 20, 2009

Total-led Yemen LNG has delayed the first shipment from its liquefied natural gas plant to mid-September from August due to minor technical problems, Yemen LNG's chief executive said on Monday.

'We expect to have the first shipment in mid-September,' said Joel Fort. 'This happens to everyone in the industry so it's not really a setback for us.”

Start-up problems included leaking valves and other minor glitches, he said.

In May, the company said LNG would be shipped in August. – Reuters
