Petronas hires Barakah Offshore for commission work on FLNG unit

Malaysian state energy company Petronas has hired PBJV Group, part of Barakah Offshore Petroleum, to work on its floating LNG (FLNG) installation in offshore Sarawak/Sabah. The contract is valued at some RM19.1m ($4.6m).

PBJV Group will provide engineering, procurement, installation and related work involved in the FLNG unit’s post-installation, onboard hook-up, commissioning and start-up phase.

The FLNG vessel, also known as PFLNG Satu, is located 180 kilometres offshore in Malaysia’s Kanowit gas field and will produce 1.2m tpa of LNG per year when fully operational.

Petronas said last year it expects the FLNG unit to export its first cargo during the first quarter 2016.
