KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – In a ceremony held at the Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. Ltd. (DSME) shipyard in Okpo, South Korea, Petronas officially named its first floating LNG facility PFLNG SATU.

The PFLNG SATU will be moored at the Kanowit gas field, 180 km (112 mi) offshore Sarawak, Malaysia. It has the capacity to produce 1.2 million metric tons of LNG per year.

The DSME-Technip consortium performed the engineering, procurement, and construction work for the vessel and topsides.

The vessel is expected to be ready for sail away in 2Q 2016. It is slated to be the world’s first FLNG vessel in operation.

Petronas’ President and Group CEO Datuk Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin said: “The PFLNG SATU is a testament to the engineering capabilities of Petronas and its partners. Today, we have pushed the boundaries and turned our technological aspirations of having an LNG plant on a floating vessel into reality.”
