Rio Tinto announced on Tuesday that it has declared force majeure on alumina shipments from its operations in Queensland, Australia, due to a gas shortage. Gas supplies from Rio's Gladstone facilities have been significantly disrupted following an incident on the Queensland gas pipeline in early March, as told by a company spokesperson to Reuters on Monday. In March, the company stated that it was evaluating the impact of fires in Queensland on the gas pipeline that supplies the plant.
