Malaysian energy firm Petronas is celebrating production start-up on its first floating LNG facility, PFLNG SATU.
The facility took LNG on board from the Kanowit gas field offshore Sarawak earlier this week.
Petronas acting vice president LNG Assets, development and production, Adnan Zainal Abidin, said: “At 365 metres long and with 22 modular systems, PFLNG SATU is an engineering marvel that brings together the liquefaction, production, storage and offloading processes of LNG to the offshore gas field.
“We have successfully stretched the limits of our abilities with floating LNG technology to maintain our technical edge as a key LNG supplier.”
Separately, media reports said Petronas confirmed its award of two blocks in Mexico’s deep water oil and gas blocks auction.
