SOFEC Delivers Mooring System for Petronas PFLNG Satu

SOFEC, part of the MODEC group, has completed the engineering, supply, and delivery of mooring system (chains and anchors) contract for the external turret system of Petronas Floating LNG 1.

Also known as PFLNG Satu, it has an external turret moored system that was designed to be moored in a water depth ranging from 70 to 200 m. In March, PFLNG1 relocated its PFLNG Satu vessel to the Kebabangan cluster field, offshore Sabah in Malaysia, which is located 90 km northwest of Kota Kinabalu in 120 m water depth. It was previously operating in the Kumang cluster field offshore Sarawak in 75 m water depth.

“The original PFLNG Satu installation in 2016 was the world’s first offshore moored FLNG vessel. We are excited to have completed the work for this relocation project and appreciate the confidence which PFLNG1 has shown in SOFEC by awarding the contract to us,” said Rick Hall, SOFEC’s president and CEO.
