Petronas reaches FID on second FLNG, awards contracts

Since the FID was reached, Petronas has awarded the engineering procurement, construction, installation, and commissioning contract to a consortium of JGC Corp., Samsung Heavy Industries Co. Ltd., JGC (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd., and Samsung Heavy Industries (M) Sdn. Bhd.
