The Petronas Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (PFLNG) Satu, the Malaysian oil and gas company’s first FLNG facility, loaded its first cargo at the Kanowit gas field, offshore Miri, Sarawak on April 1.

The first cargo was fully loaded onto the LNG carrier Seri Camellia which is expected to set sail for a South Asian market.

“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 President and Group Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin.

Manned by 145 crew onboard, PFLNG Satu is designed for water-depths of between 70 metres and 200 metres and possesses a processing capacity of 1.2 million tonnes per annum (mtpa).

Petronas has one more FLNG under construction in South Korea, initially scheduled for delivery in 2018, which was subsequently postponed to an undisclosed date.
