Petronas Launches Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Virtual Pipeline System in Johor

October 2020

Petronas, the government-owned oil and gas company, has launched an LNG virtual pipeline system (VPS) solution via its Regasification Terminal in Pengerang, Johor state. The VPS solution delivers LNG using trucks fitted with cryogenic tanks to off-grid customers.

Additionally, the solution provides an option to switch to gas as an alternative form of cleaner energy for industries located in Peninsular Malaysia that are not connected to the natural gas infrastructure. During the pilot phase in September 2020, Petronas completed its first delivery of LNG to Continental Tyre Alor Setar Malaysia’s manufacturing plant in Kedah state.

Adnan Zainal Abidin, Executive Vice-President and CEO of Gas and New Energy, stated that the VPS solution is part of Petronas’ commitment to environmental sustainability and to drive the growth of natural gas usage in the country. The company has also created a one-stop center for off-grid customers, offering supply, loading facilities, and logistic services to meet the demand for cleaner energy nationwide.
