The $10 billion Angola LNG project, led by U.S. energy giant Chevron, has resumed LNG production following a planned two-month shutdown.

“I can confirm that Angola LNG has resumed production and sales of LNG from its plant in Soyo,”  an Angola LNG spokeswoman told LNG World News on Thursday.

The 5.2 million tons per year liquefaction plant was shut down in July as part of the restart and commissioning programme.

To remind, the facility was closed for more than two years due to a major rupture on a flare line that occurred in April 2014.

It restarted operations again in May with four cargoes shipped from the facility until the maintenance began in July.

Angola LNG is a joint venture between Sonangol (22.8%), Chevron (36.4%), BP (13.6%), Eni (13.6%), and Total (13.6%).(Source: LNG World News Staff)
