Talisman holds hope for Sabah O&G jobs


Talisman, job provider.

Dateline 2016-02-19, Daily Express:

Talisman Malaysia Ltd is in the process of finalizing the design of a 3,700-tonne Wellhead Riser Platform and 350-tonne bridge that will link to the existing Kinabalu platform in the west coast of Sabah.

Construction of these new facilities, which started in April, is expected to generate new job opportunities for locals in the oil and gas sector, at a time when many players are feeling the crunch of falling oil prices.

The oil price dip has forced several companies to resort to cutting expenditure and workforce.

According to Talisman, the project would take about 18 months to complete.

“This development project will create opportunities for Malaysian suppliers and service providers involved in the fabrication, installation and commissioning phases, and also for the subsequent drilling operations that follow in the third quarter of 2017,” Talisman said in a statement.
