  • Description

    The world's biggest liquefied natural gas plant, the US$250 million project at Lumut of Brunei, was officially opened on Wednesday (April 4) by the Sultan of Brunei, Sir Hassanal Bolkiah.

    The international project has created worldwide interest and already the first six shipments of LNG have made an impact in Japan, which will take five million tons of Brunei LNG annually for the next 20 years.

    When the plant reaches peak production, a 100,000 ton tanker will have Lumut for Japan every 2-1/2 days, carrying enough gas to supply over 100,000 Japanese homes -- about half a million people -- for a year.

    Brunei LNG is the latest most technologically advanced and the biggest development of its kind in the world.

    Construction of the plant, which covers 300 acres, was a joint venture by Japan Gasoline and Procon Incorporated and started in May 1970.

    At the height of construction there were 3800 people of more than 30 nationalities employed on the site by contractors and sub-contractors.
