Petronas FLNG Satu Starts Production at New Site

The Petronas floating LNG facility PFLNG Satu recently started production at its new site at the Kebabangan cluster field, offshore Sabah, Malaysia.

First gas was pumped into the PFLNG Satu’s turret system via a 5-km flexible pipeline on May 4.

This was followed by a series of start-up activities, which included the cooling down of natural gas until the production of the first LNG drop from the Kebabangan field on May 7.

Operated by Kebabangan Petroleum Operating Company Sdn Bhd (KPOC), the field is the second location for PFLNG Satu after its successful operation in Kanowit field, Sarawak.

“We not only prove our concept of relocatable floating LNG facility, but we have also seamlessly achieved the first LNG drop in just 3 days after first gas in,” Petronas Vice President of LNG Asset Zakaria Kasah said.

“This is indeed another proud moment and a great milestone for Petronas and the floating LNG industry.”

The floating LNG facility is designed for a water depth of between 70 meters and 200 meters and a processing capacity of 1.2 million tonnes per annum with 155 crew onboard. The first LNG cargo delivery at the new field is expected in June, 2019.
