Petronas has awarded Malaysian contractor Kejuruteraan Asastera (KAB) a letter of award for the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of a 52-megawatt power plant and associated facilities for its ZLNG floating liquefied natural gas project in Sabah, East Malaysia.

Subsidiary KAB Energy Holdings has been tasked with the newbuild power plant that will be located at the Sipitang Oil & Gas Industrial Park. The facility will be the sole source of power for Petronas’ nearshore FLNG project for which it recently took the final investment decision.
