Technip has won the contract to deliver offshore brownfield and subsea tie-backs for Petronas’ first floating liquified natural gas facility (PFLNG1) east of Malaysia.
PFLNG1 will tie back to the KAKG-A platform in the Kanowit field, located 200 kilometers offshore Bintulu.
The contract covers the procurement and installation of a 3.2km flexible flowline between the existing KAKG-A central processing platform in Kanowit field to the PFLNG1 riser.
The PFLNG1 vessel, which will produce 1.2million tonnes of LNG per year, will play a significant role in Petronas’ efforts to unlock gas reserves in Malaysia’s remote and stranded fields to help meet the growing demand for gas.
The flexible flowline will be manufactured in Asiaflex Products, Technip’s manufacturing facility in Tanjung Langsat, Johor, Malaysia. It will be installed by Technip’s multipurpose vessel, the Deep Orient and completed in late 2015.
Technip’s Asia Pacific president KK Lim said: “With this award, we are able to offer a competitive solution through our unique vertically integrated value chain for subsea infrastructures, from the design and manufacture of the flexible pipes up to its installation, using Technip assets.”
