French LNG engineer Technip informed it has been awarded an engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning contract by Malaysia’s Petronas for the tie-in of PFLNG1 facility to KAKG-A platform in Kanowit field.
The field is located 200 kilometers offshore Bintulu, East Malaysia, at a water depth of approximately 80 meters.
According to Technip, the contract covers the procurement and installation of a 3.2 kilometers flexible flowline between the existing KAKG-A central processing platform in Kanowit field to the PFLNG1 riser. It also includes modification and tie-in works at KAKG-A.
Technip’s operating center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, will execute the contract. The flexible flowline will be manufactured in Asiaflex Products, Technip’s manufacturing facility in Tanjung Langsat, Johor, Malaysia. It will then be installed by the Group’s multipurpose vessel, the Deep Orient.
The installation campaign is scheduled for completion in late 2015.
Petronas’ first floating LNG production unit, PFLNG Satu, will produce 1.2 million tonnes of the chilled gas per year. It is currently being built at the DSME shipyard in Okpo, South Korea.
The company also held in June a steel cutting ceremony for its second floating LNG facility at the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in Geoje Island.
