The operation, which consists of cooling down an LNG carrier's tanks to cryogenic temperature after dry-docking and before loading its next cargo, was performed on the vessel Singapore Energy in approximately 11 hours, Petronas said in a statement on Monday.

"The partnership with Bintulu Port [...] will enhance Petronas' portfolio of services in the integrated LNG value chain," Petronas' Vice President of LNG marketing and trading, Ahmad Adly Alias said.

The cool down operation follows Petronas' first LNG bunkering operation at its Pengerang LNG terminal, south of peninsular Malaysia, the company announced last week.

Pengerang LNG's bunkering, reload and small-scale capabilities position the facility, strategically located in the Singapore Strait, as a front runner to meet the changing landscape of the marine fuel market, the company said in a statement Thursday.
