According to Reuters, CNOOC – the Chinese state-owned energy company – has diverted two LNG cargoes following a pipeline fire in Tianjin, northern China.

Reuters claims that imports were normal as of Monday. The pipeline rupture and fire was first reported on 28 December 2016.

Although a CNOOC press official was reportedly not immediately able to comment, a source with knowledge of the company’s operations in Tianjin said that imports are back to normal, and that the cargoes have been sold back to the supplier under force majeure terms.

CNOOC is the parent of the offshore oil and gas producer CNOOC Ltd, and operates a floating LNG receiving terminal, which is capable of receiving approximately 2.2 million tpy of gas.
