Petronas has announced that the first LNG has been produced from its floating LNG (FLNG) facility, PFLNG SATU.
The operational milestone marks a decade long journey for Petronas since conceptualising a FLNG facility to maximise the potential of remote and stranded gas reserves. PFLNG SATU, which operates at water depths between 70 m and 200 m, has a processing capacity of 1.2 million tpy.
Petronas’ Acting Vice President LNG Assets, Development & Production Adnan Zainal Abidin said: “At 365 m 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.”
On 14 November 2016, PFLNG SATU reached its final stages of Commissioning and Startup with the introduction of gas from the KAKG-A central processing platform at the Kanowit gas field. Petronas expects its FLNG facility to lift its first cargo and achieve commercial operations in the 1Q17.
