Malaysia: JGC Scores Petronas LNG Contract

Malaysia JGC Scores PETRONAS LNG Train 9 Project Contract

JGC Corporation said that jointly with its Malaysian subsidiary, JGC Malaysia Sdn. Bhd., it has been awarded a contract by PETRONAS LNG 9 Sdn. Bhd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of PETRONAS for the Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning (EPCC) work for the construction of the 9th LNG Train and its associated facilities in the PETRONAS LNG Complex in Bintulu, Sarawak, Malaysia.

The EPCC Contract is valued close to USD 2.0 Billion, and work is for completion at the end of 2015.

Over the past 30 years, JGC has performed the Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning for the existing eight (8) trains at the LNG Complex, and has executed Rejuvenation projects to increase the plant’s production capacity. This additional train, Train 9, will have a capacity of approximately 3.6 million tons of LNG per year and its feedstock will be supplied from PETRONAS’ newly developed offshore gas fields, off the coast of Sarawak, Malaysia.

In January 2012, two groups including JGC, were awarded the contract to take part in a design competition for the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) and EPCC Early Works for this project. Both FEED packages were then put through a rigorous technical and commercial evaluation to select the winning Contractor, leading to the award of the EPCC Contract.

JGC has been responsible for the construction of LNG plants worldwide accounting for about 30% of the global LNG production capacity, and is currently involved in four LNG EPC projects in Australia, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea, two FEED projects for floating LNG plants in Malaysia and Indonesia, and FEED work for an onshore LNG plant in Mozambique.

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
