PETRONAS’ FIRST FLOATING LNG PROJECT SURPASSES 12 MILLION HOURS WITHOUT LOST TIME INJURY

 

 

PETRONAS on 31 March 2015 achieved another significant milestone in the development of its first Floating LNG facility (PFLNG 1) by achieving 12 million man hours without any Lost Time Injury (LTI) since the project commenced in March 2012.​

 

To commemorate this achievement, a Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Day was held at the Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard in Okpo, South Korea, on 7 April 2015, which also aimed to intensify the safety culture among individuals involved in the project.

 

PETRONAS’ Vice President & Venture Director of Domestic LNG Projects, Datuk Abdullah Karim said, “We would like to thank each and every person involved in the project for their perseverance and dedication to achieve this remarkable milestone.”

 

“Safety is an essential and integral aspect of our business which needs to be observed and implemented by all of us. This principle must continuously be upheld to ensure that PFLNG 1 becomes the world’s first floating LNG facility in operation”, he added.

 

The PFLNG 1 will be moored in Kanowit gas field, located 180 kilometres offshore Sarawak, Malaysia and will produce 1.2 million tonnes of LNG per year. It will play a significant role in PETRONAS’ efforts to unlock the gas reserves in the country's remote and stranded fields, which had been deemed uneconomical to develop conventionally and to help meet the growing demand for gas.

 

Present at the HSE day were PETRONAS’ Vice President of Global LNG Projects, Adnan Zainol Abidin; PFLNG 1 Project Director, Hamzah Ahmad; Daewoo’s Vice President of HSE Operation, Mr HK Seo; and Technip’s Chairman & Senior Vice-President of Malaysia & Brunei, Syed Feizal Syed Mohammad.
