Joint efforts result in Malaysia’s first Tension Leg Platform


Dateline 2016-06-25, NST:

Malaysia’s first Tension Leg Platform (TLP), which was completed in April, is a result of a collaboration among major oil players — a signal that joint efforts are needed to remain sustainable during the “lower for longer” period. The Malikai deep-water platform was designed and built and will be operated by Malaysians. It was completed on time after 23 million man-hours, including 10 million work-hours, without a loss time injury recorded. The platform was a joint venture between Shell Malaysia as the operator (with a 35 per cent stake), ConocoPhilips Sabah (35 per cent) and Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd (30 per cent). It was designed and engineered by Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Sdn Bhd (MMHE) and Technip. It is a major milestone on what was once deemed difficult to achieve and is a national accomplishment.
