LAGOS, Nov 27 (Reuters) – Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd (NLNG), supplier of around 10 percent of the world’s LNG, declared force majeure on Thursday after Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L: QuoteProfile,ResearchStock Buzz) was forced to shut down one of its feeder plants.


“Nigeria LNG Limited has notified its buyers that it will be unable to meet all its obligations because of the impact of the shut down of (Shell’s) Soku gas plant which contributes 40 percent of NLNG’s feed stock,” the firm said in a statement.
