KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- Petronas’ first floating liquefied natural gas facility, PFLNG SATU, achieved an industry breakthrough on Dec. 5 with the successful production of its first drop of LNG from Kanowit gas field, offshore Sarawak.

The operational milestone marks a decade long journey for Petronas since conceptualizing a floating LNG facility to maximize the potential of remote and stranded gas reserves to deliver a game changer in the global LNG business.

Adnan Zainal Abidin, acting V.P., LNG Assets, Development & Production, Petronas, said, “At 365 m long and with 22 modular systems, PFLNG SATU is an engineering marvel that brings together the liquefaction, production, storage and offloading processes of LNG to the offshore gas field.”
