Malaysia’s Petronas has launched a so-called virtual pipeline system (VPS) solution for off-grid customers across Peninsular Malaysia, Kallanish Energy reports.
The solution delivers liquefied natural gas (LNG) using trucks fitted with cryogenic tanks, and the regasification terminal in Pengerang, Johor. It enables the supply of LNG to industries not connected to the gas infrastructure and offers the option to switch to gas as a cleaner form of energy, Petronas said.
During its pilot phase, Petronas delivered its first supply to the manufacturing plant of Continental Tyre Alor Setar Malaysia earlier this month. It’s unclear how much gas the VPS can deliver daily.
“We provide a one-stop centre for off-grid customers, covering supply, loading facilities and logistic services to ensure that their cleaner energy needs are met, commented Petronas’ CEO of Gas and New Energy Adnan Abidin.
