Force Majeure Update on 05 May 2006
Following the incident at the Rough facility on 16 February 2006 Centrica Storage Limited (CSL) is making regular weekly announcements to our Customers and Market Participants as to the status of the Rough facility.
Work on the offshore construction and recovery is continuing and remains on schedule.
There is no change to the estimated dates for resumption of operations given in our announcement of 28 April 2006. Our current best estimate of the date of resumption of injection operation remains 1st June 2006. Our current best estimate is that full production rates will be available from 1st October 2006 at latest. Both these estimates remain subject to change.
We will continue to make announcements whenever we have anything significant to report on the status of the Rough Facility or developments as appropriate. In line with customers' and market participants' wishes we will also continue making a regular weekly update, even if it is to report "no change". The next announcement will be made on Friday 12 May.
