Petronas will moor the 1.5-million tonne/year (tpy) PFLNG2 of Sabah, Malaysia, at Rotan gas field in deepwater Block H, with production scheduled to start in early 2018.

Yokogawa has delivered numerous control systems to Petronas. This latest contract follows Yokogawa Australia’s supply of control and safety systems for the subsea controllers and topside offshore infrastructure to the Chevron Australia-lead Wheatstone LNG project in Western Australia, featuring two LNG trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 million tpy.

Apache Corp. has completed the previously announced sale of its 13% stake in Wheatstone to Woodside Petroleum Ltd. (OGJ Online, Dec. 15, 2014).
