Petronas Bintulu LNG facility out of operation due to power loss

Malaysia’s Petronas-owned liquefied natural gas (LNG) complex in Bintulu was out of operation after experiencing a power loss at 11:30 p.m. (1530 GMT) on May 10, said the state energy company in a statement on Tuesday.

“The cause of the power loss has been identified and start-up efforts to resume operations are currently in progress,” the company said, adding that the facility was operating at optimal efficiency prior to the power loss.

Petronas added that it is engaging with its partners and customers to mitigate the impact of the incident and fulfil its contractual commitments.

In October 2022, Petronas had declared force majeure on gas supply to one of its liquefaction terminals, Malaysia LNG Dua, due to a pipeline leak caused by soil movement at the Sabah-Sarawak Gas Pipeline.

This impacted the supply of gas to Malaysia LNG Dua’s production facility at Petronas’ LNG complex in Bintulu.
