Petronas PFLNG2 plant to use Yokogawa control-safety system

The consortium comprising JGC Corp. and Samsung Heavy Industries that will supply control systems and safety instrumented systems for Petronas’s second floating LNG (FLNG) plant, PFLNG2, awarded Yokogawa Electric Corp.-affiliate Yokogawa Kontrol Malaysia a contract to provide an integrated control and safety system. The system will monitor and control PFLNG2’s liquefaction and storage components.

Petronas will moor the 1.5-million tonne/year (tpy) PFLNG2 of Sabah, Malaysia, at Rotan gas field in deepwater Block H, with production scheduled to start in early 2018.

Yokogawa has delivered numerous control systems to Petronas. This latest contract follows Yokogawa Australia’s supply of control and safety systems for the subsea controllers and topside offshore infrastructure to the Chevron Australia-lead Wheatstone LNG project in Western Australia, featuring two LNG trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 million tpy.

Apache Corp. has completed the previously announced sale of its 13% stake in Wheatstone to Woodside Petroleum Ltd. (OGJ Online, Dec. 15, 2014).
