Asian offshore builders are standing by to receive an invitation to bid for a mobile offshore production unit bound for the shallow-water K5 sour gas field off Sarawak, Malaysia, writes Russell Searancke.
Initial production will be about 250 million cubic feet per day of gas, which will be sent by subsea pipeline to the ninth train at Petronas’ liquefied natural gas complex in nearby Bintulu.
The field operator Petronas earlier this year conducted a type of pre-qualification exercise which attracted the interest of many offshore builders in Asia.
Yards from Malaysia, Thailand, China and South Korea are understood to have expressed an interest to Petronas in pursuing the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning contract.
