Malaysia: Petronas supplies LNG cargo to bunkering vessel

01 Nov 2018

Malaysia state-owned energy firm Petronas Thursday reportedly said it has supplied liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo to LNG bunkering vessel Kairos while on its way from the Hyundai Mipo Dockyard in Ulsan to Europe.

The LNG cargo reload operation was conducted by subsidiary Petronas LNG at the Regasification Terminal Pengerang (RGTP) located in south-eastern Johor.

“We believe that small-scale LNG opportunities will increase from the utilisation of alternative cleaner fuel such as LNG,” Petronas LNG chief executive officer Ezhar Yazid Jaafar said.

“The new regulation of 0.5% global sulphur cap to be imposed by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) in January 2020 will make LNG the alternative fuel of choice for the shipping industry.”

The Linde Group-owned 7,500 cbm capacity Kairos is scheduled to be delivered in Q4 2018 for supply operations of LNG to maritime customers in various ports and offshore in Northwest Europe.
