KUALA LUMPUR — April 3, 2018: Malaysia LNG Sdn. Bhd. (MLNG), a unit of Petronas, recently delivered its first liquefied natural gas to Japan’s Hokuriku Electric Power Company (Hokuriku Electric).
The cargo was delivered from the Petronas LNG complex in Bintulu by Seri Amanah, the LNG vessel chartered by MLNG and operated by Petronas subsidiary, MISC Berhad.
Petronas LNG marketing and trading vice-president, Ahmad Adly Alias, said the successful collaboration between MLNG, MISC and Hokuriku Electric to customise LNG vessels and meet the requirements of the delivery contributed to the efficient and stable supply to Hokuriku Electric.
MLNG operates the complex in Bintulu, which is one of the world’s largest on a single site. The nine-train facility has a combined annual production capacity of about 30 million tonnes.
Petronas said the delivery marked the beginning of MLNG’s supply to Hokuriku Electric via a sale and purchase agreement signed on December 6, 2016, to supply up to six cargoes of LNG annually for 10 years. — Bernama
