Fluenta, the global leader in ultrasonic measurement and management technology, today announces the sale of 24 ultrasonic flare gas monitoring systems to Malaysian state-run oil and gas company Petronas.
Fluenta’s flare gas monitoring systems will be installed at the Petronas refinery and petrochemical integrated development (RAPID) complex in Southeastern Johon, Malaysia.
The sale makes Fluenta the single biggest supplier for the Petronas RAPID project. Fluenta’s flare gas meters were sold directly through Krohne (representatives of Fluenta), to Tecnicas Reunidas engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) group.
Construction of the RAPID complex is due to be completed in 2019 and will address the growing need for petroleum and petrochemical products in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. When completed the $28 billion complex will have the capacity to produce 7.7 million tonnes per year of standard petrochemicals and speciality chemicals products.
Sigurd Aase, CEO of Fluenta, comments: “Being the single biggest supplier to the RAPID project supports Fluenta’s continued expansion into the APAC energy market. When Fluenta products are installed and calibrated by specialist engineers, the new complex will have the most accurate and reliable flow measurement devices available.”
