Shutdown at Petronas Gas processing plant

The power supply disruption was due to a flash fire at TNB’s Kertih distribution system, which feeds electricity to the GPP Complex A, PGB said in a statement.

As a result, PGB is temporarily curtailing the gas supply to its customers, all of whom have been informed.

Currently, the company is using its own back-up power system to partially start up production at the complex.

PGB said it will resume normal gas supply to customers as soon as electricity supply is restored to the complex.
