Myanmar’s Thanlyin LNG Takes FSU Delivery and Reaches Capacity

Wednesday, 16 December 2020

Myanmar’s Thanlyin LNG has ramped up imports since June to reach its monthly capacity in December, which was helped by the arrival of its permanent FSU CNTIC VPower Energy. Ship-to-ship transfers have been taking place on a weekly basis off the Burmese coast with two conventional LNGCs currently bunkering Malaysian gas sold by Petronas to Thanlyin. Petronas thus emerged as Myanmar’s principal LNG supplier.

Malaysia’s energy giant Petronas has emerged as Myanmar’s principal LNG supplier since June as the company  stole a march on rival LNG exporters. Myanmar joined the ranks of Asian LNG importers earlier this year when the newbuild and temporary FSU CNTIC VPower Global delivered an inaugural cargo to the Thanlyin LNG-to-power project, our vessel tracking data showed. At the time, a second cargo aboard the Golar Kelvin had left Petronas’ Malaysia LNG complex  with the vessel taking on a waiting position off Myanmar in the Gulf of Martaban.
