Sable Island natgas project to shut 1 week in June

NEW YORK, May 24 (Reuters) - Natural gas supply from the Sable Offshore Energy Project off the coast of Nova Scotia will be unavailable to flow on the Maritimes Canada pipeline system for one week in June during planned maintenance work, two Spectra Energy (SE.N) pipeline units said Tuesday.

The Sable project, operated by Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM.N), has the capacity to produce between 400 million and 500 million cubic feet of natural gas and 20,000 barrels of natural gas liquids per day.

The project is owned by Exxon, Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L), Imperial Oil Ltd (IMO.TO), Pengrowth Energy Trust PGF_u.TO and Mosbacher Operating Ltd. Spectra operates the Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline system that brings offshore, onshore and LNG-sourced natural gas from the Sable project in Atlantic Canada to North American markets.
