Malaysia’s oil and gas giant Petronas has said that its first floating LNG unit, the PFLNG1, remains on track for first production in 2016.

Petronas on Tuesday said the PFLNG1 has reached a 95% overall progress in its construction. The vessel, being built in South Korea by Daewoo Shipbuilding Marine & Engineering (DSME), will be deployed at the Kanowit field offshore Sarawak, Malaysia.

The PFLNG1 will be 360m long and 60m wide and will be moored 180km from shore. It will produce 1.2 million tonnes a year (mtpa) of LNG.

To remind, the Malaysian energy company in October reached a milestone by laying the keel of its second Floating LNG unit, the Petronas FLNG 2 (PFLNG2). The PFLNG2 is also being built in South Korea, but at a different shipyard – Samsung Heavy Industries.

Once completed, the vessel will be used for the liquefaction, production and offloading processing of natural gas in the Rotan field, 130 kilometers offshore Sabah, Malaysia. PFLNG2 will have a capacity of 1.5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa), and is designed for deep-water is expected to be delivered in 2018.
