PETRONAS marked another milestone as a progressive energy and solutions partner with the official naming of its second Floating LNG (FLNG) facility, PFLNG DUA. The floating LNG facility opens a new source of supply for cleaner energy as it is designed to extract gas from deepwater gas reservoirs in depths up to 1,500 meters.
With PFLNG DUA, the national oil and gas company of Malaysia owns and operates two floating LNG facilities, following the success of PFLNG SATU which has been in operation since 2017.
The PFLNG DUA was successfully delivered by PETRONAS together with its partners, JGC Corporation and Samsung Heavy Industries, the consortium responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of the floating LNG facility.
Construction of PETRONAS’ second floating LNG facility which started in 2015 is progressing on schedule for completion and sail away in February 2020. PFLNG DUA will be moored over the Rotan Gas Field at a water depth of 1,300 metres, located 140km offshore Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, with the capacity to produce 1.5 million tonnes of LNG per annum.
President and Group CEO of PETRONAS Tan Sri Wan Zulkiflee in his speech said that PFLNG DUA is a key solution by PETRONAS to monetise stranded deepwater gas fields in a safe, economical and sustainable manner. “The development of PFLNG DUA is a step forward in providing a new supply source of clean energy and in realising our shared aspiration for a low carbon future. As an integrated energy player, PETRONAS is fully invested to unlock the potential of natural gas through technology and innovative solutions in line with our Statement of Purpose to be ‘a progressive energy and solutions partner enriching lives for a sustainable future,” added Tan Sri Wan Zulkiflee.
