At the end of March, Petronas achieved a significant milestone in the development of its first FLNG facility (PFLNG Satu), by achieving 12 million man hours without any Lost Time Injury (LTI), since the project commenced in March 2012.
To commemorate the achievement, an HSE Day was held at the Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard in South Korea, which also aimed to foster the safety culture among those involved in the project.
Datuk Abdullah Karim, Petronas’ VP & Venture Director of Domestic LN Project, commented: “We would like to thank each and every person involved in the project for their perseverance and dedication to achieve this remarkable milestone.
“Safety is an essential and integral aspect of our business which needs to be observed and implemented by all of us. This principle must continuously be upheld to ensure that PFLNG Satu becomes the world’s first floating LNG facility in operation.”
The PFLNG Satu will be moored in Kanowit gas field, located 180 km offshore Sarawak, Malaysia and will produce 1.2 million tpy of LNG. It will play a significant role in Petronas’ efforts to unlock the gas reserves in the country's remote and stranded fields.
