Petronas expects first FLNG facility to sail in second quarter

Malaysia’s state-owned Petronas said its first floating LNG (FLNG) facility is expected to sail in the second quarter. A Mar. 4 naming ceremony marked completion of construction at the Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. Ltd. (DSME) shipyard in Okpo, South Korea.

The PFLNG (Satu) FLNG facility will be moored at Malaysia’s Kanowit natural gas field off Sarawak (OGJ Online, July 29, 2015). It will have a capacity to produce 1.2 million tonnes/year of LNG. Kanowit lies in 80 m of water 200 km offshore eastern Malaysia.

Petronas said the facility will play a “significant role” in its efforts “to unlock the gas reserves in Malaysia’s remote and stranded fields.”

Sung Leep Jung, DSME president and chief executive officer, said Petronas and DSME’s consortium partner, Technip, achieved 17 million hr of no lost time injuries during the construction project.
