GE Oil & Gas will supply its gas turbine-driven compressor train technology to Petronas for a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility being developed off the coast of Malaysia.
The start-up of the FLNG facility is scheduled for 4Q 2015. It will be moored about 180 km (112 miles) off the coast of Bintulu, Sarawak, and is designed to produce 1.2 million tons a year (mtpa) of LNG. Once on stream, the facility will boost Malaysia’s total LNG production capacity to 26.9 mtpa from 25.7 mtpa currently, according to a news release.
GE’s compression trains are vital elements of the liquefaction process, which cools natural gas to a liquid state, the release stated. GE’s scope of equipment supply includes four of its PGT25+G4 gas turbine generator systems, two PGT25+G4 gas turbine driven compressor units, and two electric motor driven centrifugal compressors modules. GE is scheduled to deliver its equipment to Malaysia in August 2013.
