Malaysia’s state-owned Petronas said Thursday it has awarded the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning contract for its second floating LNG project, located offshore Sabah, to a partnership of Japan’s JGC and South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries.

Petronas said the EPCIC contract for PFLNG 2 follows the January 23 board approval of the final investment decision taken on the project.

The FLNG facility will be located at the Rotan field in Block H.

Samsung Engineering announced on September 13 that it won the Terengganu Gas Terminal (TGAST) project worth US$770 million (834 billion won) from US-based oil and gas firm Hess Corporation, and Petronas Carigali, the Exploration and Production subsidiary of Malaysia’s national oil company Petronas.

This project involves the construction of a gas terminal in Kerteh, Terengganu, which lies about 260km northeast of Kuala Lumpur.

Malaysia’s national oil and gas company Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) was expected to make a final investment decision (FID) on a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) project for the Rotan field in Block H, offshore Sabah, in the second half of the year.

“Once sanctioned, production from this second FLNG vessel is expected to commence in 2016,” said a company spokesman as reported by Malaysia’s Business Times Tuesday. “The FID will be taken during the second half of this year,” he added.

The project, now in the front-end engineering design (FEED) stage, is for a FLNG equipped to produce 1.5 million tons of LNG per annum. Petronas awarded FEED contracts to two consortia – one comprising MODEC, Inc., IHI Corporation, TOYO Engineering Corporation and CB&I, while the other comprises JGC Corp and Samsung Heavy Industries.
