Malaysia LNG Sdn. Bhd., a production unit of Malaysian national oil and gas company Petronas, has awarded the Linde Group, Munich, a contract to build a midscale LNG plant within the Bintulu LNG complex in Sarawak, East Malaysia.
Design production capacity for the plant will be 1,840 tonnes/day from boil-off feed gas from LNG storage and ship loading. The new plant is to go on stream at yearend 2014.
Linde's engineering division will perform detail engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning. Linde's proprietary LNG process and core cryogenic heat exchanger have been customized to reliquefy the boil-off gases and to accommodate large variations in nitrogen content, flow rate, and temperature, Linde said.
Linde's process will also enable Malaysia LNG to minimize flaring, it said.
