Linde Engineering has officially handed over the Marlin boil-off gas reliquefaction plant to Petronas’ production subsidiary, Malaysia LNG.
The Tier One company said the handover marks the successful conclusion of this complex project, which went on stream two years ago.
Linde’s Engingeering Division was awarded the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning contract for the plant, which is located in the Bintula LNG complex in Sarawak, East Malaysia, back in 2012.
Linde’s proprietary LNG process and core cryogenic heat exchanger was customised to reliquefy boil-off gases from LNG storage and ship-loading and to accommodate large variations in nitrogen (N2) content, flow rate and temperature.
According to Petronas, the facility is the world’s largest and first onshore BOG reliquefaction plant. It has the capacity to produce almost 0.8 million tonnes of LNG per year.
