Sea Trucks, a company offering offshore support services to the oil & gas industry, will be providing flotel to Shell in Malaysia.
The company has received the contract from Sabah Shell Petroleum Company Limited to provide offshore accommodation services for the Malikai deep-water development project, located 100 kilometers off Sabah, Malaysia, at a water depth of around 500 meters.
The platform is located within the area of the Block G Production Sharing Contract in the South China Sea.
Set Trucks will be providing accommodation support services for 200 construction personnel. The contract will be for a period of 2 months, with options to extend.
Sea Trucks nominated Jascon 34, a DP3 Accommodation Pipelay Construction vessel, for this project. The vessel features accommodation facilities for max. 335 persons and will be connected to the Malikai Tension Leg Platform via its active heave compensated telescopic gangway. Offshore activities are scheduled to begin in mid-2016.
Shell recently concluded the onshore fabrication and commissioning of the Malikai deep-water platform.
