Malaysia’s exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) fell to a four year low in July as domestic gas pipeline issues plaguing the country since January took their toll.

Reuters reports that natural gas supply from the Sabah Oil and Gas terminal to the Petronas LNG Complex in Bintulu was cut in January following a gas leak in the 500 km pipeline that transports gas from Kimanis in Sabah to the Bintulu plant in Sarawak for processing.

While the pipeline has been repaired, Petronas is still awaiting the necessary approval from authorities to resume operations at the pipeline.

Petronas did not comment on the pipeline issue but a spokeswoman said that there is no disruption to cargo deliveries from the Petronas LNG complex in Bintulu and that operations at the complex are being carried out as scheduled.

The Petronas LNG Complex, which has a capacity of 24 million tpy, comprises three LNG plants owned and operated by Petronas and joint venture companies.
