Nigeria LNG late Thursday canceled an offer to sell a cargo of liquefied natural gas, according to two people with knowledge of the tender who asked not to be identified because they aren’t authorized to speak to the media.
The offer for a 140,000 cubic meter cargo loading March 1 to March 3 opened Feb. 4 and would have closed Feb. 11.
Royal Dutch Shell Plc declared force majeure on gas supplies to Nigeria LNG as of Feb. 5 after a leak on a pipeline serving two processing plants, according to a statement from the company e-mailed today. Force majeure is a clause companies use when they miss shipments because of circumstances beyond their control.
