The Petronas floating LNG1 (PFLNG1) has reached a 95% overall progress in its construction and will come onstream in 2016, the company said.
In late September, Petronas began lifting the first topside module for its PFLNG1 facility at the Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard in Okpo, South Korea.
The topside module lifting marks another major construction milestone for the facility, as it signifies the near completion of the PFLNG1, which will be the world’s first floating LNG facility in operation.
Once the construction and installation phases are completed in 2015, PFLNG1 will be moored in Kanowit field, which is about 180km offshore Sarawak, Malaysia.
