Wood Group Kenny nets KPOC pipeline work

Wood Group Kenny (WGK) will support the Kebabangan Petroleum Operating Company (KPOC) in pipeline engineering and flow assurance engineering studies for the Kamansu East (KME) field offshore Sabah, Malaysia.

WGK says that the scope of work will include concept select studies and definition engineering on subsea heating options, thus preventing hydrates, for the 30km gas pipeline which runs from the KME field in 750 meters of water to their new shelf edge Kebabangan platform.

According to WGK, the pipeline heating technology could be the first application for deepwater gas development in Malaysia.

Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood Group Kenny, said: “This project is a great opportunity to tackle the challenges posed by subsea pipeline heating for deepwater projects. It is an honour to work with KPOC on the Kamansu East project.”

The KME field and Kebabangan Northern Hub Project are part of the Kebabangan Cluster, which is owned by Petronas Carigali Sdn. Bhd. (40%), ConocoPhillips (Sabah Gas) Ltd (30%) and Shell Energy Asia Limited (30%). KPOC is a joint venture company which was established to act as the cluster operator. The first gas from the field is expected to be required in the early 2020’s.
