Exports from Yemen’s only LNG export facility are running as normal, a spokeswoman from French oil giant Total said.
Houthi militia forces on Wednesday seized an air base and appeared poised to capture the southern port of Aden from defenders loyal to President Abd-Rabbo Mansour Hadi, according to Reuters.

Following unrests in the country Yemen LNG facility in Balhaf declared force majeure on exports of liquefied natural gas stopping operations on January 18. The force majeure was lifted later in the month.

The Yemen LNG project, operated by France’s Total, consists of two liquefaction trains with a total capacity of 6.7 Mtpa. It has three long-term contracts to supply LNG to GDF Suez, Kogas and Total Gas & Power.
