ABB has announced that its single lift prefabricated electrical structures (e-houses) for offshore use are being installed on Petroliam Nasional Berhad’s (Petronas) second floating LNG (FLNG) facility (PFLNG 2).
PFLNG2 will be moored over the deep-water Rotan gas field, located off the Malaysian coast.
The fully engineered electrical system contained within the e-house will include transformers, switchboards, motor-control centres and ABB's Process Power Manager that ensures reliable and stable electricity supply to the FLNG facility. The two e-houses are currently en-route to Samsung Heavy Industries yard in Geoje, Korea, for installation on the vessel.
"ABB's long history of pioneering new technologies and expertise in the automation field is a perfect match for the floating LNG market," says Per Erik Holsten, ABB Managing Director for Oil, Gas and Chemicals. "From concept to realisation, our engineered solution is one of the optimised factors that allow oil and gas companies to exploit fields that are traditionally deemed as uneconomical. The PFLNG 2 project is also a testimonial of our commitment to stakeholders on safety, quality and customer satisfaction, irrespective of the magnitude of the project."
PFLNG 2 will enable the liquefaction, production and offloading of natural gas in the Rotan field, and produce 1.5 million tpy of LNG. The non-propelled vessel will be moored using an external turret.
