Malaysian energy giant Petronas said its floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility, PFLNG Satu, has loaded the first cargo at the Kanowit gas field, offshore Sarawak.

This is the first ever cargo produced by a floating LNG facility.

The cargo was fully loaded during the weekend onto the 150,200-cbm Seri Camellia LNG carrier which is expected to set sail for a South Asian market, Petronas said in a statement on Monday.

“This accomplishment effectively demonstrates Petronas’ proven technology and capability of adapting a conventionally land-based installation to a floating LNG facility, a game-changer in today’s LNG business landscape,” said Petronas Chief Executive Datuk Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin.

It was reported last week that the cargo could be heading to South Korea.

Petronas expects the floating LNG producer to achieve its commercial operations phase by the first half of this year.

The PFLNG Satu, that produced first LNG in December last year, is designed to last up to 20 years without dry-docking.

Manned by 145 crew onboard, the 365-meter long facility is expected to be able to produce 1.2 million tons of LNG per year.
