Jordan’s NEPCO resumes full operations at LNG import terminal

Jordan's NEPCO resumes full operations at LNG import terminal

National Electric Power Company of Jordan informed that following disruptions earlier in the month its LNG import terminal is operating at full capacity. 

Bad weather conditions forced NEPCO to declare force majeure on the terminal at the beginning of December as strong winds required the FSRU Golar Eskimo to move away from the jetty, Reuters reports.

This caused a disruption in gas supplies in Jordan and Egypt.

Capable of storing 160,000 cubic metres of LNG and delivering up to 500 mmscfd with a peaking capacity of 750 mmscfd, the FSRU delivers the fuel to power plants throughout the country and also to the Egyptian Natural Gas Holding (EGAS) via a pipeline.

Gas flows restarted at half capacity following a few off days before returning to full capacity.
