Yokogawa Electric has secured a contract to deliver control systems and safety instrumented systems for Petronas’ second floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility, PFLNG2.

The contract with a consortium of JGC and Samsung Heavy Industries requires Yokogawa Kontrol (Malaysia) to deliver a control & safety system (ICSS) for the monitoring and control of the liquefaction facilities and storage tanks on PFLNG2.

"The facility is designed to produce 1.5 million tonnes of LNG per year for around 20 years before it will need to dry dock."

The ICSS will feature a Yokogawa CENTUM VP integrated production control system, a ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system, a Plant Resource Manager package, a plant information management system, and other components.

Yokogawa Kontrol will provide engineering and support for installation, commissioning, and training.

The PFLNG2 will be constructed at Samsung Heavy Industries’ yard in Geoje this year.

The facility will be moored over the deepwater Rotan gas field, situated off the Malaysian coast, when operations begin in 2018, and is designed to produce 1.5 million tonnes of LNG per year for around 20 years before it will need to dry dock.

Swiss power technology firm ABB is delivering electrical systems for the project.
