Two POSH 16,300-bhp vessels will undertake a tow of the PFLNG Dua from South Korea’s Geoje to the Rotan Gas Field in offshore Sabah, Malaysia where it will be deployed. A third 16,000-bhp vessel will escort the PFLNG Dua en route.
A fourth 16,000-bhp vessel will be deployed to join the convoy, where it will provide station keeping services for the PFLNG Dua.
The charters are expected to start in early-April.
POSH said the contracts will be undertaken by the company’s newly launched offshore projects division, comprising a fleet of eight versatile and high-specification vessels.
“POSH is humbled to be supporting this momentous project, which will help address the world’s growing demand for clean burning fossil fuel,” said Eric Ng, managing director of offshore projects at POSH.
The PFLNG Dua is Petronas’ second FLNG unit with an annual production capacity of 1.5m tonnes of LNG, and the world’s first FLNG vessel to operate in deepwater.
