Petronas’ second floating LNG unit has set off on its 1,840 nautical mile maiden voyage to the Rotan gas field, which is offshore Sabah, Malaysia. 

The vessel (which is called the PFLNG Dua) is expected to produce one LNG cargo every fortnight – the unit has the capacity to produce 1.5 million tonnes of LNG per annum and will be one of the worlds’ first floating deep-water LNG vessels capable of reaching remote, stranded and marginal gas reserves located up to 1,500 meters underwater.

The PFLNG Dua will be at sea for approximately two weeks. Its sailing from South Korea has followed hot on the heels of the official naming ceremony of the vessel, the company said in a statement.

Once moored at the Rotan gas field, Petronas said the PFLNG Dua will commence its installation, hook-up and commissioning with the ready-for-start-up (RFSU) date earmarked for mid-2020 and provisional acceptance (PA) of the PFLNG Dua by end-2020.

The PFLNG Dua was constructed by Petronas with its partners, JGC Corporation and Samsung Heavy Industries.
