Published: Sunday 15 January 2006

A leak in the pipeline at Indonesia's Arun field in Aceh province led Exxon Mobil, leading us oil company, to cut the flow of gas to the plant. Exxon has reduced the supply to pt Arun ngl, Indonesia's oldest liquified natural gas plant, by 300 million cubic feet a day from December 9, 2005, company officials said.
