PARIS, FRANCE: Technip SA has been awarded an engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning contract by Petronas Carigali for the tie-in of Petronas first floating liquefied natural gas (PFLNG1) facility to KAKG-A platform in Kanowit field, located 200 kilometre offshore Bintulu, East Malaysia, at a water depth of  approximately 80 metre.

The contract covers the procurement and installation of a 3.2 kilometre flexible flowline between the existing KAKG-A central processing platform in Kanowit field to the PFLNG1 riser. It also includes modification and tie-in works at KAKG-A.

Technip’s operating centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, will execute the contract. The flexible flowline will be manufactured in Asiaflex Products, Technip’s manufacturing facility in Tanjung Langsat, Johor, Malaysia. It will then be installed by the group’s multipurpose vessel, the Deep Orient. The installation campaign is scheduled for completion in late 2015.

“With this award, we are able to offer to Petronas a competitive solution through our unique vertically integrated value chain for subsea infrastructures, from the design and manufacture of the flexible pipes up to its installation, using Technip assets,” said K K Lim, president, Asia Pacific, Technip.

The PFLNG1 vessel, which will produce 1.2 million tonne of LNG per year, will play a significant role in Petronas’ efforts to unlock gas reserves in Malaysia’s remote and stranded fields to help meet the growing demand for gas.
