KUALA LUMPUR (March 13): Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) has relocated its floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility, PFLNG Satu, from the Kumang cluster field, offshore Sarawak to the Kebabangan cluster field, offshore Sabah.
In a statement today, Petronas said PFLNG Satu will be moored at a water depth of 120m in the Kebabangan cluster field, located 90km northwest of Kota Kinabalu.
Petronas executive vice president and chief executive officer of upstream Datuk Mohd Anuar Taib said PFLNG Satu's technology, which features the capability to move from one location to another, will strengthen the reliability of its LNG supply system to meet growing LNG demand.
"Petronas has delivered 19 successful cargoes since the commissioning of PFLNG Satu and we are confident that this success continues in Sabah waters as well," he added.
Designed to last up to 20 years without dry-docking, the 365-metre long PFLNG Satu is expected to be able to produce 1.2 million tonnes of LNG per year.
