However, despite the hiccups, Petronas is managing to meet its contractual obligations.

"While the planned maintenance activities take place, Petronas continues to deliver upon its supply commitments to customers, leveraging on the multiple LNG production modules at (Bintulu) and through close collaboration with our feed gas suppliers," the company said in an emailed statement to news agency Reuters.

The company added that the production issues have been addressed, describing them as are "part and parcel of operations".

Reuters reported on Friday that loadings had been delayed from the nine-train Petronas LNG Complex at Bintulu, East Malaysia.

Petronas is a leading LNG player with a global supply portfolio that includes the Malaysian liquefaction facility.
