Samsung C&T Corporation, together with Science-Tech Solutions (STS), has been awarded a contract by Petronas Gas Berhad to build an LNG regasification terminal in Johor, Malaysia.
Samsung C&T will carry out the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) work for the regasification terminal, which will have a send-out capacity of 5 million tpa and two 200,000 m3 LNG storage tanks.
Construction is expected to be completed by April 2018.
The regasification terminal (RGT-2) is part of Malaysia’s development plan to secure a stable natural gas supply for the nearby Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (RAPID), Pengerang Co-generation Plant (PCP) and to the Peninsular Gas Utilisation (PGU) Grid.
Commenting on the award, a representative from Samsung C&T said: “We feel privileged to participate in the RGT-2 project together with our partners. Based on our LNG experience and expertise, we look forward to contributing to development of the Malaysia’s LNG industry, while maintaining a strict emphasis on site safety.”
