Petronas: Ninth LNG Train for Bintulu (Malaysia)

Binulu port

PETRONAS of Malaysia, which is embarking on a new production train project at its PETRONAS LNG Complex in Bintulu, said it has awarded the contract for the Front End Engineering Design (FEED) for the project to JGC Corporation and to a partnership of Chiyoda Corporation and Saipem S.p.A.

The contract, awarded under a dual FEED scheme, will see the two contractors compete in the FEED and in the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) price proposal for the project, known as PETRONAS LNG Train 9.

The FEED is scheduled to be completed in December 2012, where the winner will be awarded the project’s Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning (EPCC) contract.

The new LNG train will add another 3.6 million ton per annum (mtpa) to the existing 24 mtpa production capacity of the PETRONAS LNG Complex and will utilise the same liquefaction process technology as the Complex’s existing eight trains.

The required feed gas volume of up to 850 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) will be supplied by the various fields offshore Sarawak.

The project is targeted to meet its Final Investment Decision (FID) by Q1 of 2013 with Ready for Start-Up (RFSU) date targeted for Q4 of 2015.

Upon completion, PETRONAS LNG Train 9 will include gas receiving facilities, acid gas removal unit, dehydration and mercury removal unit, fractionation and liquefaction unit, LNG rundown unit and all the associated utilities and facilities. The LNG produced from the new train will be exported via the existing storage and loading facilities within the Complex.

A new company, PETRONAS LNG 9 Sdn Bhd, was incorporated on 13th January 2012 to manage the project.

Floating LNG

Despite challenging market conditions, global capital expenditure (Capex) on FLNG facilities is forecast to increase significantly over the 2016-2022 period. The protracted oil price downturn has impacted the sanctioning of capital intensive liquefaction units over the last 24 months. However, the need to move towards cleaner sources of energy and diversify gas supply has stimulated the floating regasification market – over 14 countries are expected to commission their first floating import unit over the forecast period. Against this backdrop, SMi’s 5th annual Floating LNG conference will provide attendees with strategic insight on the latest developments within the FLNG market to optimise activities and ensure project sustainability and success. The two-day programme will also equip you with the tools to overcome the logistical, financial, technological and economic challenges associated with FLNG deployment and ensure succinct transition from design to operation.
