Shell’s subsidiary, Sabah Shell Petroleum Company, the operator of the Malikai tension-leg platform (TLP) located offshore Sabah, is investing in the second phase of the Malikai deepwater development.
The project, which involves the drilling of two additional oil producing wells and four water injection wells to enhance Malikai’s expected recoverable oil volumes, is part of Shell’s continued investment in the country’s deep water potential and is expected to contribute to Malikai’s production in the second quarter of 2021, Shell said on Sunday.
The development deploys the same single-combo riser technology that was used for the first time during Malikai Phase 1.
“Since coming online in 2016, the Malikai TLP project has allowed Shell to play an active role in helping Sabah and Malaysia develop their deep water resources and related service industries,” said Simon Durkin, Vice-President, Malaysia Upstream.
“Projects such as these demonstrate our ability to fully leverage our existing infrastructure to unlock value,” he added.
The Malikai TLP project is a joint venture between Shell (35%, operator), ConocoPhillips Sabah Ltd (35%), and Petronas Carigali (30%).
