Andy Odeh, General Manager, External Relations and Sustainable Development, NLNG in a statement, said the company’s plant is in operation, though at a limited capacity, due to reduced gas supply from some of its upstream gas suppliers.
What is Force Majeure: Force Majeure is a clause that is included in contracts to remove liability for unforeseeable and unavoidable catastrophes that interrupt the expected course of events and prevent participants from fulfilling obligations. These clauses generally cover both natural disasters and catastrophes created by humans.
Odeh said: “None of NLNG’s assets on Bonny Island or in any of its host communities are impacted by the flood. The Force Majeure is a consequence of a similar notice by Upstream Gas Suppliers due to the impact of flood in their production facilities.
“NLNG is working with all critical stakeholders on mitigating the impact on product deliveries.
“NLNG continues to monitor the situation with Upstream Gas Suppliers and is evaluating the impact of the flood on its business,” he concluded.
