Oil Search, Santos say PNG LNG project resumes production after quake

April 13 (Reuters) - Oil Search Ltd and Santos Ltd said on Friday they have been advised by ExxonMobil Corp that liquefied natural gas (LNG) production has resumed at the PNG LNG project in Papua New Guinea after being halted following a severe earthquake in February.

LNG exports are expected to resume soon, they said.

The Australian energy companies said one train at the LNG plant near Port Moresby has started operations and the second train is expected to start up as gas production ramps up.
