Petronas: Easier access to cleaner energy with virtual pipeline system

October 9, 2020

Dateline 2020-09-08, The Star:

 As part of the company’s latest customer-centric solution to facilitate the growth of cleaner energy use across Peninsular Malaysia, Petronas recently launched the Virtual Pipeline System (VPS) solution via the Regasification Terminal (RGT) in Pengerang, Johor.

The VPS solution that was developed by the Gas & Power business of Gas and New Energy and marketed by Petronas Dagangan Bhd, delivers Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) using trucks fitted with cryogenic tanks to off-grid customers.

Through the VPS solution, Petronas provides industries in Peninsular Malaysia that are not connected to the natural gas infrastructure with an option to switch to gas as an alternative form of cleaner energy.


Delay in operations of Petronas’ regasification terminal in Malacca

November 20, 2012

Inside gossip says that the original schedule was unrealistic anyway, so I guess the ‘delay’ is of interest to those who aren’t into reading inside-baseball analysis.

Dateline 2012-10-30:

 The commercialisation of Petronas Gas Bhd‘s liquefied natural gas (LNG) regasification terminal (RGT) in Sungai Udang, Malacca may be postponed to early next year due to the delay in engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) .

“We gather from various industry sources including the contractors that the RGT could be operational by end-Jan 2013 instead of end-2012.

“This is a one-month delay versus Petronas Gas’s guidance of end-2012 and a five-month delay from the initial start date of Aug 2012.

“We believe that the delays are not due to Malaysia’s regulatory reforms but the result of EPC challenges,” CIMB Research said.
