Yemen: Navy Destroys Boat Approaching Balhaf LNG Port

Yemen’s navy fired upon and destroyed a suspicious boat that was approaching the Balhaf LNG export terminal on Wednesday, according to local media reports.

A booby-trapped boat approached from international waters, and passed security lines into Yemeni territorial waters in the area surrounding the LNG port. Yemen’s navy moved immediately towards the boat and opened fire, causing it to explode and sink.

Over the past three years Yemen LNG has suffered a number of terrorist attacks on its 350km feed-gas pipeline, causing production outages and an intermittent force majeure.

The Yemen LNG terminal has three long-term contracts to supply LNG to GDF Suez, Kogas and Total for a total of 6.7 Mtpa.
