MOSCOW, June 28 (Reuters) - Russia’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) producer Sakhalin-2 was stopped for a planned maintenance from mid-June until mid-July, a spokeswoman for managing company Sakhalin Energy told Reuters on Wednesday.
The works have not affected LNG exports from the plant, she said.
Sakhalin-2 is Russia’s sole LNG plant, producing over 10 million tonnes of LNG per year. Key buyers of the gas produced at the plant are Japan, China and South Korea.
Sakhalin-2 shareholders are Russia’s Gazprom, Royal Dutch Shell and Japan’s Mitsui and Mitsubishi. (Reporting by Oleg Vukmanovic and Vladimir Soldatkin; Editing by Andrey Ostroukh)
