KUALA LUMPUR: Petronas’ subsidiary, Petronas LNG Ltd (PLL) has successfully delivered its liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo through its maiden break bulking ship-to-ship (STS) transfer in Brunei Bay, as part of its latest offering as a global LNG portfolio solutions provider.
In a statement, the national oil and gas company said the STS would strengthen its diversified LNG supply portfolio, including from its main supply based at the Petronas LNG Complex in Bintulu, Sarawak, which has had no missed deliveries since 1983.
The cargo from Malaysia LNG Sdn Bhd (MLNG), Bintulu, was transferred from the ‘mother’ vessel, Seri Bijaksana to the ‘daughter’ vessel, SS Lucia Ambition, whereby the cargo from SS Lucia Ambition and remaining cargo in Seri Bijaksana will subsequently be delivered to respective buyers.
“As the LNG market becomes more liquid and with the emergence of new markets and non-traditional buyers who face operational constraints at their terminals, Petronas is committed to supporting the growth of these markets through providing innovative and flexible operational solutions such as LNG break bulk services via STS,” said Ahmad Adly, Vice President of LNG Marketing and Trading, Petronas.
The completion of the STS was a collaborative effort with various stakeholders namely Ports and Harbour Department Sabah, Sabah Port Authority, Argo Engineering Sdn Bhd, Eastport Marine Sdn Bhd, MISC Bhd and Farenco Shipping Pte Ltd. — Bernama
