Malaysia’s state-owned Petronas said Thursday it has awarded the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning contract for its second floating LNG project, located offshore Sabah, to a partnership of Japan’s JGC and South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries.
Petronas said the EPCIC contract for PFLNG 2 follows the January 23 board approval of the final investment decision taken on the project.
The FLNG facility will be located at the Rotan field in Block H.
Murphy Oil, operator of the upstream block, had announced FID of the project early this month.

For more than a decade, the world’s biggest liquefied natural gas producers led by Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA) plotted how to move their $170 billion industry onto barges at sea to tap remote fields. Now they’re finally doing it.
Shell will forge the hull of a floating LNG plant in South Korea by year-end that will be the world’s largest vessel, weighing six times the biggest aircraft carrier, a Nimitz-class warship. Some 5,000 workers will build the factory to produce LNG off Australia’s northwest coast in a $13 billion project that also will shield Shell from escalating costs it would have to pay at the country’s onshore plants
