Petronas ships 50th cargo from PFLNG Satu
Petronas on October 5 said it has delivered the 50th LNG cargo from its first floating LNG facility, PFLNG Satu. The milestone cargo was loaded on September 25 onto the Seri Cemara LNG carrier for shipment to Taiwan.
The first FLNG cargo was produced from the Kanowit gas field, offshore Sarawak in 2017. PFLNG Satu was also the world’s first FLNG facility to successfully produce LNG from two remote gas fields when it was relocated from the Kanowit gas field to its current location at the Kebabangan gas field, offshore Sabah, in 2019, Petronas said.
Petronas vice president of LNG assets, Abang Yusuf Abang Puteh said, PFLNG Satu has produced and exported nearly 3.18mn metric tons of LNG from the Kebabangan and Kanowit gas fields since 2017.
The PFLNG Satu is designed to operate at water depths of up to 200 m with a production capacity of 1.2mn mt/yr. Petronas' second floating LNG facility, PFLNG Dua, shipped its first cargo earlier this year.
