Petronas LNG has announced it now offers commercial gassing up and cooling down services at the LNG Regasification Terminal Pengerang in collaboration with Pengerang LNG.
The recent completion of the services for Petronas vessel Puteri Zamrud Satu marks a significant milestone for gassing up and cooling down at the terminal. The operation signifies the first of many potential utilisation of gassing up and cooling down services at the terminal by other LNG operators and owners due to its strategic location along the Straits of Johor.
Gassing up and cooling down is a specialised service to displace the inert gas from the LNG vessel’s storage tanks and it is cooled down to cryogenic temperature.
Petronas LNG CEO Ezhar Yazid Jaafar says: ‘The gassing up and cooling down services at the terminal solidifies Petronas’ position as a progressive LNG solutions partner, offering flexible and diversified solutions to cater to the needs of our growing customers’ requirements.’
