Qatar’s RasGas has discovered a virus affecting its office computer networks but production has been unaffected, the world’s second-biggest liquefied natural gas (LNG) producer said yesterday. “The company’s office computers have been affected by an unknown virus … It was first identified on Monday,” the company said in a statement.
“Operational systems both onsite and offshore are secure and this does not affect production at the Ras Laffan Industrial City Plant or scheduled cargoes.” Saudi Aramco was attacked by unknown hackers on Aug. 15, prompting it to cut off its electronic systems from the outside world to prevent more intrusions.
