LNG leaves Yemen after pipeline attack

Source: UPI,17/10/2011

SANAA,-Liquefied natural gas left a Yemeni port bound for India during the weekend, 24 hours after al-Qaida attacked a key gas pipeline, a company said.

The official Saba news agency in Yemen blamed opposition groups and al-Qaida for attacking a natural gas pipeline in Shaba province. The report adds firefighters were able to get the blaze under control after a 12-hour battle.

Yemen LNG said, in a statement, that a carrier left an LNG terminal in the Gulf of Aden bound for India.

Valves on the pipeline were closed shortly after the attack and the damaged section was fully depressurized. Yemen LNG said it ordered an early start to annual maintenance at the LNG port to "mitigate the loss of LNG production arising from the pipeline sabotage."

Violence in Yemen is on this rise as the country's president clings to power. Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, meanwhile, has stepped up its attacks in Yemen after two of its key figures were killed, allegedly by missiles fired by CIA drones.

Yemen LNG said that despite the violence in the country, it's only had two days of shutdown this year.

Nobody was injured during the attack, the company added.
