PTT is on track to before year-end start up Thailand’s next liquefied natural gas import facility — the 7.5 million tonnes per annum Nong Fab terminal on its eastern seaboard.

The Nong Fab receiving and regasification facility in Rayong province on 18 June began offloading its first LNG cargo.

The 55:45 joint venture of Italy’s Saipem and Taiwan-based CTCI Corporation almost four years ago started executing the approximate $925 million engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) workscope for the Nong Fab facility.
