The Pengerang Integrated Petroleum Complex (PIPC) is an initiative by the Johor State Government to develop an oil and gas hub in Pengerang. PIPC will house PETRONAS’s Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (RAPID) project and a host of other oil and gas industries, enterprises and support facilities.
The raw water supply project to PIPC will be undertaken in two (2) phases where Phase 1 will deliver 260 Mld of raw water, while Phase 2 will double up the total raw water supply to 520 Mld.
Johor State Government has granted PRPC Water Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Petronas the rights to develop Phase 1 of the raw water supply project to PIPC (up to the boundary of RAPID). This Phase 1 development is known as the Raw Water Supply Project to RAPID or “Projek Air Mentah RAPID” or “PAMER”, and will deliver 230 Mld of the raw water to RAPID and another 30 Mld to the Johore State Government’s water treatment plant at Sg. Lebam.
The raw water will be abstracted from Sg. Sedili Besar and pumped through a raw water pumping main to an off-river storage by impounding a storage reservoir at Sg. Seluyut. From the Seluyut impounding reservoir, the raw water is delivered by gravity via the draw-off tower to a Booster Pumping Station downstream of the impounding reservoir. From the Booster Pumping Station, the raw water is pumped to the Terminal Reservoir at Bukit Panjang some 56 km away. 230 Mld of the raw water will be supplied to the Terminal Reservoir and 30 Mld will be supplied to the water treatment plant at Sg. Lebam. From the Terminal Reservoir at Bukit Panjang, raw water will be fed to a water treatment plant at RAPID by gravity pipelines.
