Technip Builds Platform for Malaysian Drilling Project
Technip, in a joint venture with Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering, has received an engineering, procurement and construction contract from Sabah Shell Petroleum to build a tension leg platform for the TLP Malikai Deepwater Project.
The TLP will be designed as a fully-manned platform to be installed 110 kilometers offshore Sabah, Malaysia, at a water depth of approximately 500 meters. The TLP will weigh approximately 26,000 tonnes and include three topsides and a hull.
The platform will have the capacity to process 60,000 barrels of oil and 1.4 million cubic meters per day of ga. The tendons will be fabricated in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and transported to Malaysia for installation at the Malikai field.
Technip will handle the work from its office in lKuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Hull and moorings engineering will be performed in Kuala Lumpur by Technip MHB Hull Engineering. The Malikai TLP will be constructed and commissioned at MMHE’s fabrication yard at Pasir Gudang in Johor, Malaysia.
The platform will be completed in mid-2015.
