KUALA LUMPUR, 23 Feb (Bernama) -- PETRONAS, which is embarking on a new

production train project at its PETRONAS LNG Complex in Bintulu, Sarawak, has

awarded the contract for the Front End Engineering Design (FEED) for the project

to JGC Corporation and to a partnership of Chiyoda Corporation and Saipem S.p.A.

The contract, awarded under a dual FEED scheme, will see the two contractors

compete in the FEED and in the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC)

price proposal for the project, known as PETRONAS LNG Train 9.

The FEED is scheduled to be completed in December 2012, where the winner will be

awarded the project’s Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning

(EPCC) contract.

The new LNG train will add another 3.6 million ton per annum (mtpa) to the

existing 24 mtpa production capacity of the PETRONAS LNG Complex and will

utilise the same liquefaction process technology as the Complex’s existing eight

trains.

The required feed gas volume of up to 850 million standard cubic feet per day

(mmscfd) will be supplied by the various fields offshore Sarawak.

The project is targeted to meet its Final Investment Decision (FID) by Q1 of

2013 with Ready for Start-Up (RFSU) date targeted for Q4 of 2015.

Upon completion, PETRONAS LNG Train 9 will include gas receiving facilities,

acid gas removal unit, dehydration and mercury removal unit, fractionation and

liquefaction unit, LNG rundown unit and all the associated utilities and

facilities. The LNG produced from the new train will be exported via the

existing storage and loading facilities within the Complex.

A new company, PETRONAS LNG 9 Sdn Bhd, was incorporated on 13th January 2012 to

manage the project.
