Malaysian energy giant Petronas, through its Petronas LNG unit, has completed an LNG break bulking ship-to-ship (STS) transfer in Brunei Bay.

The break bulk operations saw the fully loaded Seri Bijaksana vessel carrying LNG cargo from Gladstone LNG, Australia, transferring smaller parcels onto two other vessels for onward deliveries to different LNG terminals in Shanghai, China.

The first cargo was transferred to the 80,000-cbm  Arctic Spirit, while the second cargo transfer was done with another similar size vessel, Polar Spirit.

The back-to-back break bulking STS transfers via Arctic Spirit and Polar Spirit vessels were completed in approximately 72 hours, manifesting a just-in-time (JIT) principle, driving the operational cost to the minimum level, the company said in its statement.

The completion of the STS was a collaborative effort of the Department of Ports and Harbour of Sabah, Sabah Ports Authority, Sabah Ports, Argo Engineering, Eastport Marine, MISC, Asian Supply Base, Teekay LNG Partners and Shenergy Group.

In June 2018, Petronas completed its first STS operations at the same site in Brunei Bay, a location gazetted for STS operations due to its calm waters.
