The PETRONAS LNG Complex in Bintulu Malaysia sprawls over a land area of 276 hectares. It has a combined production capacity of about 23 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) and has become the world's largest LNG plant in a single location. It is made up of three LNG plants: Malaysia LNG Sdn Bhd, Malaysia LNG Dua Sdn Bhd and Malaysia LNG Tiga Sdn Bhd. The first plant, MLNG Train 1, 2 and 3 began operation in 1983. The second plant MLNG Dua started its operation of Train 4, 5 and 6 in 1994 and the third plant, MLNG Tiga Train 7 and 8 began operation in 2003.
The MLNG Tiga project, with a total annual capacity of 7.8 Mtpa for two trains, is one of the largest ever built.

A fire at the MLNG Tiga plant in August 2003, forced a temporary shutdown for repairs. In accordance with the recovery plan, the facility managed to resume its normal operation in April 2004, three weeks ahead of the original target of seven months.

This paper discusses the sequence of events of the fire incident in Train 7. It provides a thorough analysis of the incident and the enhanced modifications instigated to resolve the problems encountered and highlights the steps taken to recover production safely in the quickest possible time.
