Classed by DNV GL, the PFLNG1 vessel, also known as PFLNG SATU, is expected to play a significant role in the efforts of Malaysia state owned oil company PETRONAS to unlock the gas reserves in that country’s remote and stranded fields previously thought to be uneconomical to develop.

Yeah, I can:

Dateline 2015-05-19, TMI:
