Deepwater project passes on skills to Malaysian O&G


Dateline 2015-09-22, Borneo Post Online:

The Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas), Shell and Technip-MMHE Joint Venture (TMJV) for the safe integration of the topsides of its Malikai deepwater platform onto the hull at Pasir Gudang, Johor provided much-needed education and skill to enhance Malaysia’s oil and gas talent.

According to Simon Ong, managing director of Shell Global Solutions Malaysia, Projects and Technology, the project was necessary as Malaysia needs the oil to sustain the revenue and energy needs of the country.

With them now having almost a full suite of deepwater technology, Ong said this will position Malaysia to be the hub of deepwater in the region as aspired by Petronas.

“This is a very important milestone for us in Malaysia,” he said in a recent site visit.
