Malaysia’s MISC Berhad has hosted the sail away of its Marginal Marine Production Unit, a fit-for-purpose FPSO for the development of marginal fields, in a ceremony today in MMHE East Yard, Pasir Gudang, Malaysia.
The first deployment of MaMPU 1 as the FPSO is named, will be at Anjung Kecil oil field, offshore Sarawak, which is currently being operated by Vestigo Petroleum Sdn. Bhd. on behalf of PETRONAS Carigali Sdn. Bhd.
The ceremony was attended by MISC’s Vice President of Offshore Business Unit, Tuan Syed Hashim Syed Abdullah, Keith Collins – CEO, Vestigo Petroleum Sdn. Bhd. as well as management and representatives from PETRONAS, MISC, MHB, NGL Tech Sdn. Bhd. and other guests.
MaMPU 1 was converted from an oil tanker and has a storage capacity of 318,000 barrels, designed to produce 15,000 barrels of oil per day with 25MMscfd of gas handling capacity. One transformation technology that MISC has adapted on MaMPU 1 is Sep-iSYSTM, a compact low-pressure system that stabilizes the crude received from the reservoir for safe storage and subsequent export to the market.
Through its Condensate Recovery System (CRS), MaMPU 1 is designed for increased oil production via recovery from unwanted flaring gas. CRS, combined with Sep-iSYSTM will enable the production of an additional 50 barrels of oil per one million square cubic feet of flared gas, MISC said.
