Petronas to delay construction of second FLNG

Malaysian state-owned energy giant Petronas , which revealed yesterday its 2015 net profit had halved, has decided to shelve commissioning of its second FLNG.

The construction of PFLNG 2 will be delayed as Petronas seeks to make cuts in capex of between $4bn to $5bn a year.

The keel-laying ceremony for PFLNG 2 has only just taken place at South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries. The facility was originally earmarked for 2018 delivery to work offshore in Sabah.
