Petronas offers gassing up & cooling down services at Pengerang lNG Terminal

KUALA LUMPUR, April 25 (Bernama) -- Petronas through its subsidiary, Petronas LNG Ltd (PLL), now offers commercial gassing up and cooling down (GUCD) services at the liquefied natural gas (LNG) Regasification Terminal Pengerang (RGTP), through a collaboration with Pengerang LNG (Two) Sdn Bhd (PLNG2).

The terminal is owned by PLNG2, which is a joint-venture among Petronas Gas Bhd, Dialog LNG Sdn Bhd and Permodalan Darul Ta’zim Sdn Bhd.

Petronas in a statement today said the recent completion of the GUCD for Petronas vessel Puteri Zamrud Satu marked a significant milestone for GUCD at the RGTP.

The GUCD took place after Puteri Zamrud Satu’s departure from the Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering (MMHE) dry dock in Pasir Gudang, Johor.

PLL chief executive officer Ezhar Yazid Jaafar said the GUCD services at RGTP solidified Petronas’ position as a progressive LNG solutions partner, offering flexible and diversified solutions to cater to the needs of its growing customers’ requirements.

This GUCD operation signifies the first of many potential utilisation of GUCD services at the RGTP by other LNG vessel operators and owners due to its strategic location along the Straits of Johor.

GUCD is a specialised service to displace the inert gas from the LNG vessel’s storage tanks and it is cooled down to cryogenic temperature (minus 160 degrees Celsius).

This process is required for LNG vessels, typically post dry dock, before the vessel’s next LNG cargo loading.

PLL also signed a Marine Services Agreement with Johor Port Bhd (JPB) for the provision of marine services, which include offering attractive tariff to LNG vessels utilising GUCD services from PLL at RGTP.

The collaborative effort with JPB and Johor Port Authority would encourage more vessel operators and owners to utilise the services at RGTP due to its close proximity to shipyards in Malaysia and Singapore.

RGTP is Malaysia’s second LNG regasification terminal after Regasification Terminal Sungai Udang, built primarily to serve the refinery and petrochemical customers at the Pengerang Integrated Complex.

RGTP features two LNG storage tanks with a total capacity of 400,000 cubic metres.
