The LNG cargo was delivered to the terminal, called RGTP, by MISC’s LNGC Seri Begawan. Prior to this, RGTP terminal has received three commissioning cargoes on September 1 and 23 and on October 17.
The terminal will provide gas supply to the Pengerang Integrated Complex which includes refinery and petrochemical plants, as well as a cogeneration plant. The terminal will also supply the peninsular gas utilisation system, to increase the availability of gas in the country.
The terminal has a total capacity of 3.5 MTPA. It includes two 200,000cbm LNG storage tanks and a jetty which can accommodate Q-Max carriers.
The facility is operated by PLNG2 Sdn Bhd (PetGas 65%, Dialog LNG Sdn Bhd 25%, Permodalan Darul Takzim 10%).
The Pengerang terminal is PetGas’ second regasification facility to start operation after its first facility in Melaka.
