Malaysian oil and gas company Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas), on Tuesday (9 November) reportedly performed its first liquified natural gas (LNG) bunkering operation south of Pasir Gudang Port, Johor.
The bunkering operation marks the company’s venture into LNG bunkering in the region.
The project was developed jointly with the government through the Ministry of Transport, and the Marine Department Malaysia (JLM) since 2017 to install the necessary infrastructure needed for LNG bunker supply.
The maiden operation involved bunkering 1,150 metric tonnes of LNG from bunkering vessel MV Avenir Advantage, to the Volkswagen operated LNG powered car carrier Siem Aristotle.
Moving forward, MV Avenir Advantage will provide LNG bunkering services to international and domestic vessels along the Straits of Malacca, said JLM.
MV Avenir Advantage is a Malaysian flagged LNG bunkering vessel leased by Petronas from Future Horizon, a joint-venture company between MISC Bhd and Avenir LNG Pte Ltd.
