KUALA LUMPUR — Nov. 16, 2017: Petronas Gas Berhad (PGB) recently received the first commercial liquefied natural gas cargo for its newly-commissioned Regasification Terminal Pengerang (RGTP).
The RGTP, also known as RGT2, was its second regasification facility to commence operation following the first one in Sungai Udang, Melaka.
The LNG cargo belonging to Petronas was delivered to the RGTP by MISC Berhad’s LNG vessel Seri Begawan, said a PGB statement today.
Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer Kamal Bahrin Ahmad, who is also chairman of PLNG2 Sdn. Bhd., said the commencement of commercial operations of RGTP on last November 1 marked a very significant milestone for PGB.
“It strengthens our regasification business segment and will provide an additional revenue stream to PGB,” he said.
Prior to this, the RGTP received three commissioning cargoes.
The RGTP is built to provide primary gas supply to the refinery and petrochemical plants, as well as Pengerang Cogeneration Plant within the Pengerang Integrated Complex and to the peninsular gas utilisation system.
It delivered its first gas to the PGU pipeline on September 15, 2017.
PGB owns 65 per cent of Pengerang LNG (Two) Sdn. Bhd. while the rest is held by Dialog LNG Sdn. Bhd. (25 per cent) and Permodalan Darul Takzim (10 per cent). — Bernama
