Malaysia’s Petronas reported the start of LNG production from its first floating LNG (FLNG) facility offshore Sarawak.
Natural gas comes to the Satu FLNG facility from the KAKG-A central processing platform in Kanowit field (OGJ Online, Nov. 17, 2016). The gas is treated and liquefied by the Satu’s nitrogen-based liquefaction unit.
The Satu facility is expected to reach commercial operations in first-quarter 2017. At 365 m in length, the Satu has a processing capacity of 1.2 million tonnes/year.
It is designed to maximize the potential of remote and stranded gas reserves.
