LONDON (Reuters) - Pakistan GasPort, its second liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal, expects to restart operations on Friday evening after suspending gas flows into the grid after a leak occurred, it said on Thursday.
The terminal in Port Qasim in Karachi was inaugurated late last month and took in its first cargo around the same time.
Traders said on Wednesday that repairs to the facility would take 10 days, citing a pipeline blast or gas leak that caused the disruption.
"There are no faults with the jetty and marine works or the Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) or the subsea section of the pipeline and there has been no blast," the company said in a statement.
