ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Malaysia Inc (EMEPMI), a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation, together with Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd have successfully completed the construction and loadout of its platform jacket for the first large-scale Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) project in the region.

The eight-legged jacket – a tall, steel structure that rises up from the ocean to support a surface deck – is now en route to be installed at the Tapis field, located about 200km offshore Terengganu.

“The 5,500-tonne jacket is the substructure for the main central processing facility of the EOR project. Built in Lumut, it’s the heaviest jacket that we have installed in Malaysia,” Project Executive Douglas C. Smith told Bernama in an exclusive interview.
