After detecting leak on the insulating joint in the gas pipe linking the LNG terminal to the transmission grid, Elengy, in accordance with its procedures, informed the competent authorities. For safety reasons, Elengy decided to stop send-out into the transmission grid on 4 May.
Elengy removed the gas from the relevant pipe and isolated the terminal from the transmission grid. The preparatory work for the repair started on 12 May and is passing off safely.
During all work on this gas pipe, a flame from the terminal's flare stack will be visible. Using flare stack to burn the boil off gas is normal and controlled.
The teams remain mobilized and are currently working to restart send out as soon as possible, in coordination with the competent authorities.
