Running a DataPump export completes without errors, but import fails for one table with TIMESTAMP (6) WITH LOCAL TIME ZONE column, due to:

ORA-31693: Table data object "SOE"."ORDERS" failed to load/unload and is
being skipped due to error:
ORA-02354: error in exporting/importing data
ORA-01891: Datetime/Interval internal error

There is no issue with DataPump dumpfile because:
- the issue doesn't reproduce other than the customer database
- when the same dump file is imported into another database it works fine.
