Malaysia adds second FLNG to monetise stranded gas from deepwater

Dateline 2019-12-20, Riviera:

In November, Petronas held a naming ceremony for its second floating LNG facility, PFLNG Dua, at South Korean shipyard Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI). When it is commissioned in 2020 the FLNG will have the capability to liquefy gas extracted from deepwater reservoirs in depths of up to 1,500 m.

The Malaysian energy company calls PFLNG Dua “bigger and better” than 365-m PFLNG Satu, its first FLNG, which achieved its first LNG cargo on 1 April 2017 and which is moored some 180 km offshore Bintulu in Sarawak, Malaysia. PFLNG Dua will have the capability to produce 1.5 mta of LNG, with a storage capacity of 177,000 m3. By comparison, PFLNG Satu has a capacity to produce 1.2 mta of LNG.
