Petroliam Nasional Bhd via its subsidiary Petronas Gas and New Energy Sdn Bhd (PGNESB) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Eneos Corp (Eneos) to develop a competitive, clean hydrogen supply chain between Malaysia and Japan jointly, and to explore other hydrogen opportunities.

Petronas Gas and New Energy executive VP and CEO Adnan Zainal Abidin said the group is proud to expand its three-decade long energy partnership with Eneos to include hydrogen.

“This is on top of what we have established in the liquefied natural gas (LNG) space.

“More importantly, this partnership is a testament of how industry collaboration can help accelerate our shared aspiration towards a low carbon future,” he said in a statement.

Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas), which is the only company to own and operate two floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) vessels, said a third one is possible if there is a demand.

Petronas’ two floating LNG units are PFLNG Satu and PFLNG Dua.

“If there is a reservoir with a sizeable amount of reserves and the right gas – a composition that it is economically viable – it opens up a case for another floater,” said the company’s Gas and New Energy Business executive vice-president and chief executive officer, Adnan Zainal Abidin.

Malaysia’s Petronas has achieved first gas from its first floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility, PFLNG SATU earlier this week (14 November) from the Kanowit gas field, offshore Sarawak.

The introduction of gas from the KAKG-A central processing platform at the field ignited the PFLNG SATU flare tower at the height of 130m, proving the technological aspirations of Petronas to unlock gas reserves in Malaysia’s remote and stranded gas fields, the company said in a statement.

PFLNG SATU made its 2120 nm journey from Okpo, South Korea to the Kanowit gas field on 14 May 2016 for its offshore phase of commissioning, which Petronas anticipates will soon progress towards commercial operations and first cargo.

The PFLNG SATU, fitted with an external turret for water depths of between 70-200m deep, will extract natural gas via a flexible subsea pipeline for the liquefaction, production, storage and offloading processes of LNG at the offshore gas field.

“We have come a long way with our partners to deliver a game changer in the global LNG business. The shared vision for PFLNG SATU to monetise gas resources uneconomical to develop via conventional means is an achievement all can be proud of,” said Adnan Zainal Abidin, Petronas acting VP LNG assets, development and production said.

Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) says its floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility (PFLNG) is a game changer that will open doors to more opportunities in global projects.

Global LNG Project, Upstream vice president Adnan Zainal Abidin said although Petronas’ first PFLNG, the PFLNG1, is expected to start operations in the first quarter of next year, the group has already received enquiries from multinationals.

Petronas has two PFLNGs in the pipeline: the PFLNG1, costing more than US$1 billion and scheduled to be ready by early 2016, and the PFLNG2, expected to be ready by 2018.
