Air Liquide Engineering & Construction entered into a partnership with Samsung Engineering, for the Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) study of a methanol production plant for Sarawak Petchem, a state-owned oil and gas firm established and owned by the State Government of Sarawak, Malaysia.This FEED is a key step that will help decision makers get the necessary information to convert the contract into an Engineering, Procurement and Construction contract in the near future.

Leveraging their complementary strengths and know-how, Air Liquide Engineering & Construction and Samsung will carry out Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) study. Air Liquide Engineering & Construction will be the technology licensor while Samsung Engineering will design the project’s utility systems and balance of plant.

FEED is a key step that will help decision makers get the necessary information . The FEED will be exclusively converted to Licensor, Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning (LEPCC) contract at the end of the year subject to final decision.

The methanol plant, which will be located in Bintulu, Sarawak State, Eastern Malaysia, will come into operation in 2023. This new facility will produce 5,000 tons of methanol per day based on Air Liquide Engineering & Construction proprietary process technology, Lurgi MegaMethanol TM , which converts natural gas into methanol.

Air Liquide Engineering & Construction is a world leading methanol licensor, with over 50 years experience in plant design, engineering, procurement and construction offering customers safe, reliable and energy efficient technology solutions.
