Yemen LNG installs five Tideland SB-285P lateral mark buoys at Balhaf Port
Yemen LNG has installed five Tideland SB-285P lateral mark buoys equipped with SolaMAX 140/6 self-contained LED lanterns to mark the exclusion zone around its facilities at the Port of Balhaf.
YNLG has been using Tideland's smaller SB-138P buoys to mark the exclusion zone since 2007 but have now chosen the larger buoy to mark one side of the zone.
Tideland has also supplied the company’s maintenance team with a further five SB-138P buoys.
Yemen LNG was incorporated in 1995 to develop the LNG plant at Balhaf in the country's Burum coastal area. The first three LNG contracts were signed in 2005 under which the Yemen state-owned oil and gas company Safer Exploration and Production supplies the LNG plant with up to 12.5 billion cubic meter (bcm) of gas per year from the Block18 of the Marib-Jawf field. Production started in 2009.
