Petronas’ first floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility, PFLNG Satu, has achieved a new milestone with the successful loading of its first cargo at the Kanowit gas field, offshore Sarawak.
The first cargo was fully loaded onto the LNG carrier Seri Camellia which is expected to set sail for a South Asian market.
“This accomplishment effectively demonstrates Petronas’ proven technology and capability of adapting a conventionally land-based installation to a floating LNG facility, a game-changer in today’s LNG business landscape,” said Petronas president and group CEO Datuk Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin.
Manned by 145 crew onboard, PFLNG Satu is designed for water depths of between 70-200m and possesses a processing capacity of 1.2 MTPA. The facility achieved first gas last November and produced its first drop of LNG a month after.
