Petronas Satu FLNG receives gas from Kanowit field

Malaysia’s Petronas has started to receive natural gas production from Kanowit field offshore Sarawak for its first floating LNG (FLNG) facility.

Gas from the KAKG-A central processing platform ignited the Satu FLNG flare tower at a height of 130 m on Nov. 14. The company said the Satu will soon progress towards commercial operations and first cargo.

Petronas called it a “game changer in the global LNG business” and said the Satu will monetize gas resources from remote and stranded gas fields that are uneconomical to develop via conventional means.

The Satu is designed to last up to 20 years without dry-docking and has the flexibility to be redeployed to multiple locations. It is fitted with an external turret for use in 70-200 m of water.

Kanowit lies about 180 km offshore Sarawak (OGJ Online, May 17, 2016).
