Sakhalin Energy, the operator of Russia’s first LNG export plant located in the country’s Far East, stopped production from one of the project’s trains last weekend. 

However, speaking to Reuters, the company’s spokeswoman, Larisa Yamamoto, said production would resume in the coming days.

The production was halted due to a compressor issue on the first liquefaction train a source with a source telling Reuters the maintenance of the unit could take up to 15 days.

Yamamoto added that the interruption would have no material impact on LNG exports.

The facility has a production capacity of 9.6 million tonnes per annum of liquefied natural gas, mostly reaching the Asian markets. It is a joint venture between Gazprom, Shell, Mitsui and Mitsubishi.
