Air Liquide Engineering & Construction, a leading methanol licensor, has entered into a partnership with South Korea-based 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.

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, which converts natural gas into methanol.

Leveraging their complementary strengths and know-how, 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 to convert the contract into an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract in the near future,” Air Liquide said in a press release.

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.

“We are proud to have established this partnership which further enhances our position as the leading technology provider for Methanol plants. Our Lurgi MegaMethanol technology for world-scale methanol plants with a production capacity of up to two million metric tons of methanol a year, enables reliable production with cost-optimised energy efficiency and lower environmental impact. This renowned expertise and strong presence in Malaysia combined with Samsung Engineering strong track-record in South-East Asia as EPC and project management company, have been key to gain the trust of Sarawak Petchem,” David Maloney, E&C chairman & CEO, said.
