BAGSF-2 Commences Delivery of Gas to SPSB's New Methanol Plant in Bintulu
Bintulu, 18 September 2023 – The Bintulu Additional Gas Facility (BAGSF-2) commences delivery of gas to a new Sarawak methanol plant in Bintulu, supporting the further growth of petrochemical industry in the State of Sarawak. The initial supply of gas from BAGSF-2 via a newly built pipeline provides the fuel for the commissioning of the world scale Sarawak Petchem Sdn Bhd (SPSB)’s methanol plant.
With a design capacity of 390 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (MMscfd), the BAGSF-2 facility caters for the requirement of the new methanol plant (160 MMscfd), plus 70 MMscfd to supply to the Sarawak Energy Berhad (SEB)’s existing power plant in Bintulu. The remaining capacity is allocated for other projects earmarked in Bintulu, under the Sarawak Gas Roadmap.
