South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding Marine & Engineering (DSME) has shared photos of what is going to be the world’s first Floating LNG unit in operation.

The vessel, scheduled for completion by the end of the year, will be owned by Malaysian oil and gas giant, Petronas.

The PFLNG1, how the vessel is named, will be deployed at the Kanowit field offshore Sarawak, Malaysia.

The unit will be 360m long and 60m wide and will be moored 180km from shore. It will produce 1.2 million tonnes a year (mtpa) of LNG.
