Japanese-led Consortium Wins FEED Contract for Floating LNG Unit from PETRONAS.
The FEED is for PETRONAS' second FLNG unit. The FLNG is designed to produce 1.5 million tons per annum of LNG at offshore Sabah, Malaysia.
The FEED includes the basic design of natural gas liquefaction system utilizing pre-cooling system, purpose designed hull, living quarters, mooring system, LNG storage tank and LNG offloading system followed by an EPCIC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Installation and Commissioning) cost estimate for the Project.
The FEED and cost estimate are expected to be completed by the middle of 2013.
MITC will provide PETRONAS with the basic design package and cost estimate of the best FLNG unit with technical and economic advantage based on MODEC group's rich EPCIC and operation experiences of Floating Production systems including mooring system technology, IHI's substantial experiences in offshore and shipbuilding and its unique and reliable LNG storage (IHI-SPB tank) technology, TOYO and CB&I's experiences in highly efficient topside plant engineering and fabrication.
The FLNG facility is one of the most anticipated solutions to commercialize remote offshore gas fields. MODEC, IHI, TOYO and, CB&I will further expand global FLNG business.
