PETRONAS announced that its first floating liquefied natural gas facility, the PETRONAS Floating LNG SATU (PFLNG SATU), has recorded a new milestone by sending its 50th liquefied natural gas (LNG) shipment, a press release issued by the company cited.

PETRONAS elaborated that this shipment was loaded onto the Seri Cemara LNG Carrier on September 25th, 2021, heading to Taiwan.

In 2019, PFLNG SATU became the world’s first FLNG facility to successfully produce LNG from two remote gas fields when it was relocated from the Kanowit gas field to its current location at the Kebabangan gas field, offshore Sabah.

“We are proud to celebrate this milestone cargo from PFLNG SATU which attests to the world-class reliability of our first FLNG facility and more importantly, the commitment of our workforce to provide an uninterrupted supply of LNG to our customers,” PETRONAS Vice President of LNG Assets Abang Yusuf Abang Puteh said.

“This achievement showcases our leadership in the LNG industry, where we continue to benefit from our first-mover advantage to monetize remote and stranded gas fields with FLNG solutions.  Despite operating in a challenging environment heightened by the COVID-19 pandemic, PFLNG SATU has produced and exported nearly 3.18 million tons of LNG from the Kebabangan and Kanowit gas fields since 2017, whilst maintaining high Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) standards,” Abang Yusuf added.
