Malaysian energy giant Petronas has relocated its floating liquefied natural gas unit, the PFLNG Satu, from the Kumang cluster field, offshore Sarawak, to the Kebabangan (KBB) cluster field, offshore Sabah.
The PFLNG Satu will be moored at a water depth of 120 meters in the KBB cluster field, located 90 kilometers northwest of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, the company said in a statement.
Petronas executive vice president and CEO Upstream Mohd Anuar Taib said PFLNG Satu’s technology, featuring the capability to move from one location to another will strengthen the reliability of PETRONAS’ LNG supply system to meet growing LNG demand.
“Petronas has delivered 19 successful cargoes since the commissioning of PFLNG Satu and we are confident that this success continues in Sabah waters as well,” he added.
Designed to last up to 20 years without dry-docking, the 365-meter long PFLNG Satu is expected to be able to produce 1.2 million tonnes of LNG per year.
It also complements Petronas’ global LNG portfolio the company said in its statement.
