KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Petronas has delivered the 50th LNG cargo from the PFLNG Satu, the company’s first floating LNG vessel.
On Sept. 25, 2021, the milestone cargo was loaded onto the MISC Berhad-operated LNG carrier Seri Cemara for shipment to Taiwan.
The first LNG cargo was produced from the Kanowit gas field offshore Sarawak in 2017.
The PFLNG Satu is the world’s first FLNG facility to successfully produce LNG from two remote gas fields, the company said. The vessel transferred from the Kanowit gas field to its current location at the Kebabangan gas field offshore Sabah in 2019.
Abang Yusuf Abang Puteh, Petronas vice president of LNG Assets, said the PFLNG Satu has produced and exported nearly 3.18 million metric tons of LNG from the Kebabangan and Kanowit gas fields since 2017.
The PFLNG Satu is designed to operate at water depths of up to 200 m (656 ft) with a production capacity of 1.2 million metric tons of LNG per annum.
The company also owns and operates the FLNG vessel PFLNG Dua.
