Petronas hails milestone in delivering LNG via virtual pipe
Malaysia's state-owned Petronas recently completed its 1,000th LNG delivery via its virtual pipeline system (VPS), it said on January 26. The VPS delivery was sent to a customer located in Chemor, Perak.
The system began operating in 2020 and has delivered over 16mn kg of low carbon energy using trucks fitted with cryogenic tanks to off-grid customers, Petronas said.
“Importantly, this milestone highlights the reliability of our VPS solution which continues to improve low carbon energy access for customers located away from the main gas pipelines,” Petronas’ energy and gas trading CEO, Mohd Khairuddin Abdul Khalik, said. “The VPS solution provides customers with a viable option to power their businesses in a more environmentally sustainable manner with natural gas.”
The integrated VPS solution covers supply, loading facilities and logistic services to off-grid businesses via the regasification terminal in Pengerang, Johor.
