SOFEC delivers mooring system for Petronas’ FLNG Satu
SOFEC, a MODEC Group company, has completed the engineering, supply, and delivery of a mooring system – chains & anchors – for Petronas’ FLNG Satu external turret.
This project included the engineering, supply and delivery of the replacement mooring legs and anchors for the external turret system, MODEC said on Thursday.
The PFLNG Satu has an external turret moored system which was designed to be moored in a water depth ranging from 70 to 200 meters.
In March 2019, the FLNG Satu was relocated to the Kebabangan cluster field, offshore Sabah in Malaysia, which is located 90 kilometers northwest of Kota Kinabalu in 120 meters water depth.
It was previously operating in the Kumang cluster field, offshore Sarawak in 75 meters water depth where it was deployed in May 2016. It produced first gas in November 2016, sending first LNG cargo a month later.
According to Rick Hall, SOFEC’s President and CEO: “The original PFLNG Satu installation in 2016 was the world’s first offshore moored FLNG vessel. We are excited to have completed the work for this relocation project and appreciate the confidence which PFLNG1 has shown in SOFEC by awarding the contract to us.”
