Petronas’ floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility PFLNG SATU loaded its first cargo at the Kanowit gas field offshore Miri in the state of Sarawak, Malaysia, on 3 April. The facility is the world’s first to begin commercial FLNG operations. The cargo was loaded onto the LNG carrier Seri Camellia, which was expected to set sail for a South Asian market. “This accomplishment effectively demonstrates Petronas’ proven technology and capability of adapting a conventionally land-based installation to a floating LNG facility, a game-changer in today’s LNG business landscape,” Petronas President and Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Datuk Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin said. Operated by an onboard team of 145 crew members, PFLNG SATU has an LNG processing capacity of 1.2 million metric tons/yr.
