Exheat to Heat Hazardous Areas at Petronas FLNG
Exheat have been awarded the contract to supply the hazardous area electrical heaters and control solutions for the PETRONAS floating liquefied natural gas facility.
The PETRONAS FLNG will be among the world’s leading FLNG vessels, scheduled for operation in 2015. With a 1.2 million tonnes per annum capacity, it is expected to operate 365 days a year at the Kanowit gas field, converting gas into LNG with production destined for Malaysia and other world areas. This ground breaking facility which possesses a design life of 20 years will enable PETRONAS to monetise its upstream stranded gas assets and eliminates substantial costs required in the provisioning of fixed infrastructure such as subsea pipelines to shore. Furthermore, it allows the Company to leverage on its FLNG experience to explore more opportunities in the LNG industry, regionally and globally.
Kevin Tyrrell, General Manager of Exheat said “Our selection as the supplier of choice to the PETRONAS FLNG project is a key award for Exheat and serves as continued testimony by our clients of our commitment in providing world class, high quality electric heating solutions to meet the most demanding requirements” .
