IEM Shout Out – Talk on ‘Malaysia Oil & Gas Deepwater Development – The Experience Thus Far’

March 14, 2009

This is a shout out for the IEM. My Technical Division will be having a talk on the 19th March as titled above. It’ll be at 5:30 pm (makan-makan at 5:00) at the IEM , Bangunan Ingenieur, PJ.

My friend, Ahmad Sedek will be giving the presentation. The synopsis is:

It is anticipated that there will be less commercially viable oil & gas fields in the Malaysian shallow water. As such, there is an equal push towards developing fields in the deep (200-1000m water depth) and ultra-deep (more than 1000m water depth) water. In line with this shift, PETRONAS has set the tone by stating its ambition to make Malaysia as the regional deepwater hub and, along with its Production Sharing Contractors, has set the ball rolling by the successful oil production from Kikeh Deepwater Development. The presentation intends to share presentor’s general experience in the deepwater projects, which covers background, introduction to technologies, challenges/opportunities, and Kikeh development examples.

Come all, and get your 2 CPD hours.

Taking the article from the Asian Oil & Gas magazine,

More Kutei Basin fields in development frame: Indonesia’s first producing deepwater field, West Seno, looks set to be joined by several other fields in the Kutei Basin in the Makassar Strait off the coast of East Kalimantan, all under the operatorship of Chevron.
