The quest for remote gas pushes FLNG innovation

Dateline 2015-05-19, Marine Log:

By the end of this year, the world’s first Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) vessel will go to work in Malaysia’s gas field, some 180 kilometers off of the coast of Sarawak, producing 1.2 million tonnes of LNG annually.

Classed by DNV GL, the PFLNG1 vessel, also known as PFLNG SATU, is expected to play a significant role in the efforts of Malaysia state owned oil company PETRONAS to unlock the gas reserves in that country’s remote and stranded fields previously thought to be uneconomical to develop.
