This involves tie-in of the PFLNG1 floating LNG vessel to the KAKG-A platform central processing platform that serves the Kanowit field, 200 km (124 mi) offshore Bintulu, in 80 m (262 ft) of water.
Technip’s center will manage the operation, which involves laying a 3.2-km (1.99-mi) flexible flowline between the platform and the PFLNG1 riser and performing modification and tie-in works at KAKG-A.
Asiaflex Products in Tanjung Langsat, Johor, will manufacture the flowline, with the Deep Orient handling the installation, due to be completed in late 2015.
PFLNG1 is Petronas’ first FLNG vessel. It is designed to produce 1.2 MM metric tons/yr (1.32 MM tons/yr) of LNG.
