Malaysian energy giant Petronas said on Thursday it has completed its first liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply operation at its Pengerang regasification terminal in Johor.

Petronas LNG, a unit of Petronas, supplied the cargo to Babcock Schulte’s 7,500 cubic meter LNG bunkering vessel Kairos.

This follows the agreement between Petronas LNG and Uranos Vermögensverwaltungs, a joint venture company of Bernhard Schulte and Babcock International.

The LNG reload operation into the world’s largest LNG bunker vessel, Kairos took place at the Pengerang terminal jetty. Kairos departed from Hyundai Mipo Dockyard, Ulsan, South Korea, and received the LNG suppy enroute to Europe.

“We believe that small-scale LNG opportunities will increase from the utilisation of alternative cleaner fuel such as LNG. The new regulation of 0.5% global sulphur cap to be imposed by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) in January 2020, will make LNG the alternative fuel of choice for the shipping industry,” Petronas LNG Chief Executive Officer Ezhar Yazid Jaafar said.

The reload operation is a result of close collaboration among all Petronas units including Petronas Gas Berhad, Pengerang LNG (Two) and other key stakeholders such as the Marine Department of Malaysia, Johor Port Authority and Johor Port Berhad.
