Spectra Energy (SE.N) units Maritimes Canada and Maritimes U.S. said in separate website postings Tuesday that they learned the Sable Island Offshore Energy Project in Nova Scotia production facility would not return to service as originally scheduled from its planned service outage.

On Monday Exxon Mobil (XOM.N) said a team was sent to assess damage to the Sable project, which has been shut for scheduled maintenance.

A spokesman was not immediately available on Tuesday.

According to the company's website, the Sable Project is owned by Exxon, Shell (RDSa.L), Imperial Oil (IMO.TO), Pengrowth Energy Trust (PGH.N) and Mosbacher Operating Ltd.

The project normally produces between 400 million and 500 million cubic feet of natural gas and 20,000 barrels of natural gas liquids per day.

Natural gas from the Sable Project flows to markets in Atlantic Canada and New England on Spectra's Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline. (Reporting by Eileen Moustakis)
