PENGERANG — August 30, 2016: Petronas has recorded another milestone at the Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC) with the completion of the roof air-raising for two liquefied natural gas tanks at the Re-gasification Terminal 2 (RGT2).

Two steel dome structures were pneumatically thrust to a height of 53 metres, closing the most critical activity in the LNG tank construction.

RGT2 is expected to start commercial operations by the fourth quarter of 2017.

Both tanks are 88 metres in diameter and weigh 1,040.1 tonnes, making them among the largest and heaviest in Southeast Asia. The air-raising of each roof took about 3 hours, followed by 5 hours of welding to secure each roof into position.
RGT2 is expected to start commercial operations by the fourth quarter of 2017. It is designed and developed to offer LNG unloading and reloading,
storage, handling and regasification, with a capacity of 3.5 million tonnes per annum.

To augment the availability of gas in the country, RGT2 is also connected to the peninsula gas utilisation system via the 72-kilometre Pengerang gas pipeline.

RGT2 is developed by Pengerang LNG (Two) Sdn. Bhd., a joint-venture by Petronas Gas, Dialog Group and the Johor government. — Bernama
