Carimin Petroleum’s subsidiary, Carimin Engineering Services Sdn. Bhd. (CES), has received a letter of award from Lundin Malaysia B.V. for the provision of topside major maintenance (TMM), offshore Malaysia.
According to the company, the letter was received on July 8, 2015.
The company adds that the total value of the contract will depend on the actual work orders to be issued by Lundin from time to time during the contract period.
The contract which started on July 8, 2015 will be effective for two years until 2017 and it has an option for a further one-year extension.
CES is required to provide topside maintenance services based on work order issuance basis for Lundin’s Wellhead Platform (WHP) and Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit in Bertam offshore oil field.
The Bertam field is located offshore Peninsular Malaysia on Block PM307 and was initially discovered in 1995 by the Bertam-1 well drilled by Petronas Carigali. PM307 was acquired by Lundin Petroleum’s wholly owned subsidiary Lundin Malaysia in 2011.
First oil from the Bertam field started in April 2015 with production from four pre-drilled wells. The remaining production wells will be drilled sequentially and put on-stream through the remainder of 2015.
