KUALA LUMPUR — April 10, 2015: PETRONAS recently achieved another significant milestone in the development of its first floating LNG facility (PFLNG Satu) by achieving 12 million man hours without any lost time injury
since it started in March 2012.

To commemorate this achievement registered on last March 31, a health, safety and environment (HSE) day was
held at the Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering shipyard in Okpo, South Korea, recently which also aimed to intensify the safety culture among people involved in the project.

PETRONAS vice-president & venture director of domestic LNG projects Datuk Abdullah Karim said that safety was an essential and integral aspect of the company’s business which needs to be observed and implemented by everyone.

This principle must continuously be upheld to ensure that PFLNG Satu becomes the world’s first floating LNG facility
in operation.

PFLNG Satu will be moored in the Kanowit gas field, located 180 kilometres offshore Sarawak and will produce 1.2 million tonnes of LNG per year.

It will play a significant role in PETRONAS’ efforts to unlock the gas reserves in the country’s remote and stranded fields, which had been deemed uneconomical to develop conventionally and to help meet the growing demand for gas. —  Bernama
