Technip awarded Malikai Project contract in Malaysia

PARIS, FRANCE: Technip, in a joint venture with Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Sdn Bhd (MMHE), was awarded by Sabah Shell Petroleum Company Ltd (SSPC) a substantial contract for the engineering, procurement and construction of a tension leg platform (TLP) for the TLP Malikai Deepwater Project.

This TLP will be designed as a fully-manned platform to be installed 110 kilometre offshore Sabah, Malaysia, at a water depth of approximately 500 metre. The TLP will weigh approximately 26,000 metric tonne incorporating topsides, which will have facilities to process 60,000 barrels of oil and 1.4 million cubic metre per day of gas, and a hull. The tendons will be fabricated in the US Gulf of Mexico, and transported to Malaysia for installation at the Malikai field.

Technip will lead the joint venture, with engineering and procurement to be carried out at its operating centre in Kuala 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 work is scheduled for completion in mid-2015.

“This award to the Technip-MMHE joint venture extends our participation in pioneering deepwater field development projects in Malaysia. It also confirms Shell’s trust in the combined Technip and MMHE’s capabilities to deliver successful projects. This contract marks Technip’s first TLP contract and a new step in our development into the burgeoning deepwater floating production facilities market in the Asia Pacific region,” said Lim Kwee Keong, Senior Vice President for Asia Pacific, Technip.
