Petronas reports fire incident at Johor

April 17/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Petronas announced a "fire incident" that occurred on 12 Apr. 2019 at the Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC) in Johor, Malaysia, reported Apic-onlne.

The fire occurred at its atmospheric residue desul-phurization unit, which is currently in the commissioning stage.

"The situation is under control and there is no health related risk to the incident," the company noted.

The unit is part of Petronas' Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (RAPID) project, which includes a 300,000-b/d refinery and a petrochemical complex.

Operations are expected to begin early this year

"Teams have been set up and are currently working closely with the relevant authorities to investigate the cause of the incident," Petronas added.

As MRC wrote before, in late January 2017, Petronas said its new USD27 billion refining and petrochemical complex project in the southeast Asian country is on track for start-up in 2019. RAPID, located within the Pengerang Integrated Complex in the southern Malaysian state of Johor, is designed to have a 300,000-bpd oil refinery and a petrochemical complex with a production capacity of 7.7 MMt.

Petronas, short for Petroliam Nasional Berhad, is a Malaysian oil and gas company wholly owned by the Government of Malaysia. The Group is engaged in a wide spectrum of petroleum activities, including upstream exploration and production of oil and gas to downstream oil refining; marketing and distribution of petroleum products; trading; gas processing and liquefaction; gas transmission pipeline network operations; marketing of liquefied natural gas; petrochemical manufacturing and marketing; shipping; automotive engineering; and property investment.
