As part of its latest customer-centric solution to facilitate the growth of cleaner energy use across Peninsular Malaysia, PETRONAS has launched a virtual pipeline system (VPS) solution, via its regasification terminal in Pengerang, Johor.
The VPS solution that was developed by the Gas & Power business of Gas and New Energy and marketed by PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad, delivers LNG using trucks fitted with cryogenic tanks to off-grid customers.
Through the VPS solution, PETRONAS provides industries in Peninsular Malaysia that are not connected to the natural gas infrastructure with the option to switch to gas as an alternative form of cleaner energy. As part of the pilot phase, PETRONAS completed its first delivery of LNG to Continental Tyre Alor Setar Malaysia Sdn Bhd’s manufacturing plant earlier this month.
Commenting on the milestone, PETRONAS Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of Gas and New Energy, Adnan Zainal Abidin said: “The introduction of the VPS solution forms a part of PETRONAS’ commitment to environmental sustainability and to drive the growth of natural gas usage in Malaysia. By creating an ecosystem and establishing the necessary infrastructure, we offer customers a cleaner and competitive form of energy to power their businesses.”
“We achieve this by embracing our customers pain-points in our strategies which results in strong collaborations across PETRONAS’ value chain to provide an integrated solution. Ultimately, through our VPS solution, we provide a one-stop centre for off-grid customers, covering supply, loading facilities and logistic services to ensure that their cleaner energy needs are met. The launch of our latest solution is a testament of how PETRONAS delivers customer-centric solutions through our focus on innovation,” Adnan added.
