The Malaysian Gas Association (MGA), the nation’s lead advocate for the local gas industry, welcomed the delivery of the first third party liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo, a testament that the natural gas market reforms in Malaysia remain on track to ensure sustainability of the industry.
The regasification terminal at Sungai Udang in Melaka received the cargo on October 7, – the first since the Third Party Access (TPA) came into force, said MGA in a statement today.
It said the first third party LNG cargo proved that Malaysia is on course to a transition towards a vibrant and sustainable gas market.
“Efforts must also be focused on increasing demand for gas within the country. Higher demand will create more opportunities for third party to enter the market and spur investment to develop upstream indigenous gas that will further strengthen the long-term security of supply.

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.
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.
