Yokogawa Electric Corporation has announced that its affiliate, Yokogawa Kontrol (Malaysia), has received an order to supply control and safety instrumented systems for Petronas’ second floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility, PFLNG2.
Under the terms of the contract, Yokogawa Kontrol will deliver an integrated control and safety system (ICSS) for the monitoring and control of the liquefaction facilities and storage tanks on PFLNG2. The ICSS will consist of a Yokogawa Centum VP integrated production control system, a ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system, a Plant Resource Manager (PRM) package, a plant information management system, and other components. Yokogawa Kontrol will also be responsible for engineering, and the support of installation, commissioning, and training.
The PFLNG2 facility will be moored off Sabah, Malaysia, and is designed to produce 1,5 million tons of LNG a year, with production scheduled to start in early 2018.
An FLNG facility is a plant that performs all operations at sea, starting with the routing of natural gas from offshore gas fields and including the refining, liquefaction, storage, and transfer of this resource onto LNG carriers. FLNG is attractive because the technology does not require the acquisition of land or laying of pipelines, making it suitable for small to medium-sized offshore gas fields that are deemed economically unfeasible to develop.
Since its establishment in Malaysia in 1989, Yokogawa Kontrol (Malaysia) has developed a solid global track record and extensive know-how of LNG processing plants, LNG carriers, FPSO vessels, and other types of offshore facilities. It has delivered numerous control systems to Petronas production facilities.
In 2013, Yokogawa set up an organisation that is dedicated to the growing marine resource business, as part of its efforts to expand its control business in this sector and offer the latest technology solutions to its customers.
