JX Nippon Oil & Energy (JX NOE) is pleased to announce that PETRONAS LNG 9 Sdn Bhd (PL9SB) commenced commercial operations on 1st January.
Last June, JX NOE purchased a 10 per cent stake in PL9SB, which owns the ninth LNG liquefaction train within the PETRONAS LNG Complex in Bintulu, Sarawak, Malaysia. The train has a production capacity of 3.6 million tonnes per annum.
JX NOE’s entry into PL9SB marked its second participation in PETRONAS’ LNG projects, in addition to its existing 10 per cent equity interest in MLNG Tiga Sdn Bhd.
With the addition of the state-of-the-art liquefaction plant owned by PL9SB, the PETRONAS LNG Complex now has the capacity to produce approximately 30 million tonnes per annum. The strategic partnership of JX NOE and PETRONAS will strive towards expanding the LNG business and ensuring a reliable supply of energy for the customers.
