Linde Engineering, a unit of the German industrial gases groups Linde, said it has officially handed over the Marlin boil-off gas reliquefaction plant to Petronas’ production subsidiary, Malaysia LNG.

The facility was built in the middle of one of the world’s largest LNG complexes, operated by Malaysia LNG, located in the town of Bintulu, on the west coast of Borneo. The complex has the capacity to produce about 30 million mt of liquefied natural gas (LNG) per year.

“The handover marks the successful conclusion of this complex project, which went on stream two years ago,” Linde Engineering said in a brief statement through its social media channels.

Back in 2012, Malaysia LNG placed an engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contract with Linde Engineering for the reliquefaction plant. The facility is the world’s largest and first onshore BOG reliquefaction plant, according to Petronas.

It has the capacity to produce almost 0.8 million tonnes of LNG per year.

The multimillion-dollar plant reliquefies excessive boil-off gas evaporating out of the LNG storage tanks at the Bintulu complex, which was previously flared.

Petronas said earlier this year in a presentation during a conference in Tokyo that it managed to recover 7.5 cargoes of LNG in 2016 thanks to the BOG reliquefaction plant.
