Chevron-led 5.2 million tons per year Angola LNG plant in Soyo has restarted production following the latest shutdown during late December. 

The December shutdown was due to engineers performing “minor intervention”.

“I confirm that Angola LNG’s plant has restarted production,” Angola LNG spokeswoman said in an emailed statement to LNG World News.

To remind, the $10 billion Angola LNG project, restarted operations in May last year after it was closed for more than two years due to a major rupture on a flare line that occurred in April 2014.

At the end of October, Chevron chief financial officer Pat Yarrington, told that such short duration shutdowns are often experienced as facilities are ramped up to their full capacity.

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