KUALA LUMPUR — May 21, 2019: Petronas has achieved its first liquefied natural gas (LNG) drop by its floating facility, Petronas Floating LNG Satu (PFLNG Satu), at the Kebabangan cluster field, 90 kilometres offshore Sabah.
Kebabangan is the second location for PFLNG Satu after its successful operation in Sarawak’s Kanowit field.
Petronas vice-president of LNG Asset, Zakaria Kasah, said the introduction of first gas into PFLNG Satu, achieved on May 4, was from the Kebabangan field via a 5-km flexible pipeline.
The commencement of a series of start-up activities included the cooling down of natural gas until the production of the first LNG drop on May 7, he said in a statement today.
Designed for water depth of between 70 metres and 200 metres and a processing capacity of 1.2 million tonnes per annum with a crew of 155 on board, PFLNG Satu will support Petronas´ global LNG portfolio and enhance its reputation as a preferred and reliable LNG supplier.
The first LNG cargo delivery at the new field is expected next month. — Bernama
