Petronas Achieves First Gas at Floating LNG Facility

Petronas announced Thursday that its first floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility, PFLNG SATU, has achieved first gas from the Kanowit gas field, located offshore Sarawak.

The first gas milestone signified the commencement of commissioning and startup for the floating LNG facility, which will soon progress towards commercial operations and first cargo, Adnan Zainal Abidin, Petronas acting vice president of LNG assets, development and production said.

“We have come a long way with our partners to deliver a game changer in the global LNG business. The shared vision for PFLNG SATU to monetize gas resources uneconomical to develop via conventional means is an achievement all can be proud of,” Adnan said.

PFLNG SATU made the 2,120 nautical mile journey from Okpo, South Korea, to the Kanowit gas field on May 14 for its offshore phase of commissioning. Fitted with an external turret for water-depths of between 229 feet and 656 feet deep, PFLNG SATU will extract natural gas via a flexible subsea pipeline for the liquefaction, production, storage and offloading processes of LNG at the offshore gas field.

Designed to last up to 20 years without dry-docking, PFLNG SATU has the flexibility to be redeployed to multiple locations to better access the marginal and stranded gas fields of Malaysia.
