The oil and gas firm based in Texas, ExxonMobil, has resumed operations at its liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Papua New Guinea.

The project was temporarily shut down following a severe earthquake in February this year.

The firm has relaunched operations for one train at the LNG facility, located near Port Moresby, with the second train to restart as production increases.

Whilst the site was shutdown, ExxonMobil executed maintenance that was scheduled for later during the year in a bid to be as efficient as possible.

“Resuming LNG production ahead of our projected eight-week timeframe is a significant achievement for ExxonMobil, our joint-venture partners and our customers,” stated Neil W. Duffin, President of ExxonMobil Production Company.
