According to Reuters, China National Offshore Oil Corp. (CNOOC) has declared force majeure on several prompt LNG deliveries from at least three different suppliers.

Reuters reports that this action has been taken due to the economic impact caused by the coronavirus outbreak. This is the first known case of a Chinese company doing so.

According to Reuters, two sources claim that the force majeure notice covers LNG purchases by CNOOC during February and March.
