LAGOS (Reuters) - Nigeria's Bonny liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant has restarted after a power outage shut down the facility on December 22, a spokesman for the national energy company said on Friday.
"The plant had been at a reduced capacity this week, but we expect normal operations to begin next week," the spokesman said.
Nigeria is the world's seventh-largest exporter of LNG. The Bonny plant, the country's chief LNG facility, has production capacity of around 22 million tonnes a year.
Nigeria LNG Limited runs the plant, which is owned by Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) with 49 percent percent, Shell 25.6 percent, Total 15 percent and Eni 10.4 percent.
The facility is located on Bonny island in the heart of Africa's largest oil and gas industry.
