JGC Corp. has announced that, as a part of a consortium with JGC Group company, JGC Malaysia, it has been awarded an engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contract by Petronas LNG 9 Sdn. Bhd. (PL9SB), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Petronas.
The EPCC contract, valued at 60 billion yen, forms part of Petronas’ LNG complex in Bintulu, Sarawak, Malaysia. It calls for the EPCC work associated with expansion of LNG storage and shipping facilities at Petronas’ LNG complex. It covers the construction of the piping and associated facilities connecting the existing six LNG storage tanks and the seventh new LNG storage tank with the shipping facilities. This includes the piping connecting the LNG rundown lines from the existing LNG trains with the LNG rundown line from the ninth LNG train currently under construction.
Petronas’ LNG complex currently has eight production trains with a combined capacity of 25.7 million tpy. JGC has constructed all eight of the currently existing trains at the LNG facility and is executing the EPCC work on the ninth train. Since the completion of the first LNG train, JGC has also continued to work on rejuvenation, expansion and revamping projects at the LNG facility.
This project will help stabilise Malaysia’s capacity to export LNG, which will in turn help to support the country’s continuing economic growth. The project will also be important in helping Japan’s energy security, as it currently relies on Malaysia for more than 15% of its total LNG imports.
