Sable Island offshore natgas project work delayed

* Work starts Monday, no supply available during outages

* Sable to return to full operation on Thursday

NEW YORK, Nov 29 (BestGrowthStock) – Planned maintenance work at
the Sable Offshore Energy Project off the coast of Nova Scotia
has been delayed a few days, Spectra Energy (SE.N: ) pipeline
units Maritimes U.S. and Maritimes Canada said in separate
notices on Sunday.

A revised outage schedule calls for a partial day outage on
Monday, followed by a complete outage on Tuesday, a partial
outage on Wednesday and a return to full operation on Thursday,
Dec. 2. The work was originally scheduled to start over the
weekend.

No supply will be available from Sable to flow on the
Maritimes and Northeast pipeline system during the outages, the
posting said.

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. Recently the project has been producing closer
to 330 mmcf per day.

It 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.
