Malaysia to award EPCC contact to Japanese for liquefied natural gas Train 9 Project

Petronas will soon award a US$2billion contract to Japan’s JGC Corporation.

The engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contract is for Petronas’ liquefied natural gas Train 9 Project at its LNG Complex in Bintulu, Sarawak.

The LNG Train 9 project will add 3.6 million tonnes per annum to the Bintulu complex's existing 24 mtpa capacity. It is expected to increase the flexibility of Petronas' LNG portfolio while supporting the overall growth of the region's natural gas industry.

Upon completion, the LNG Train 9 project is expected to include gas receiving facilities and units comprising acid gas removal, dehydration and mercury removal, fractionation and liquefaction and LNG rundown units.
