Restart of Libyan gas exports to Italy delayed to May 5: sources

Tripoli — The restart of gas flows via the Greenstream pipeline from Libya to Italy has been pushed back again by another week, and is now expected to resume by Saturday May 5, after an outage due to work to complete planned maintenance at key offshore gas infrastructure, sources close to the pipeline operator said Sunday.

Gas flows had been expected to restart on Saturday, April 28, but data from Italian gas infrastructure company Snam showed no flows for that day and no nominations for April 30.

Flows from Libya through the Greenstream pipeline into Gela, Italy, have been at zero since the start of the maintenance on April 2 to integrate gas production from a new phase of development at the offshore Bahr Essalam gas field.

Before the maintenance started, average gas flows through Greenstream were at 15 million cu m/d in March, S&P Global Platts data shows.

The maintenance was supposed to be completed by April 18, but sources said it would take longer due to small leaks in the connections from the new Bahr Essalam gas development. All maintenance work had been completed, so it was unclear why exports were delayed.

Neither Libya's National Oil Corp or Eni, the joint venture partners in Greenstream, could be reached for a comment on the exports.
