Malaysia: MHB Wins FSU Lekas Contract

Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Holdings Berhad (MHB) announced that it has been awarded by MISC Berhad a conversion contract for the SS Tenaga Satu LNG Carrier.

The contract is for the repair, life extension and conversion of MISC Berhad’s SS Tenaga Satu into a Floating Storage Unit (FSU) facility, to be known as FSU Lekas. Upon completion, FSU Lekas would be moored at Malaysia’s very first Regasification Terminal at Sungai Udang, Melaka.

This is the first conversion into a FSU by a Malaysia-based company and also amongst the first few in the world. As the demand for a cleaner source of energy grows, LNG carriers will play a pivotal role in meeting future’s energy demand. A regasification terminal or facility would be required when importing LNG and FSUs can be a cost effective solution in such a facility.

The repair and conversion of LNG vessel into a FSU facility marked a successful extension of MHB’s scope of services and capabilities as the Group currently also provide repair and drydocking facilities to LNG and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) vessels. In the recent financial year ended 31 March 2011, 16% of the vessels repaired by MHB are high-value LNG/LPG vessels.

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.
