“This can be a very harmful scenario for the fuel community as pipelines face excessive backpressure at LNG [liquefied natural gas] offloading factors from two re-gasification terminal,” a senior official within the fuel community advised Daybreak. He stated the fuel system began with line-pack of 4,810 million cubic ft per day (mmcfd) on Sunday and closed at 4,750 mmcfd within the night. “That is very unsafe stage.
