Sarawak Shell Bhd (SSB), through its Gorek field under the SK408 Production Sharing Contract (PSC) has achieved its first gas production on May 24, 2020.

SSB said the first gas was delivered ahead of the committed timeline, despite the significant impact to the mobilisation of resources and construction and commissioning crew during the Movement Control Order (MCO) due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“This success is a result of the excellent collaboration between our key stakeholders, Petronas and SK408 PSC partners – SapuraOMV Upstream and Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd, contractors, vendors and various support teams within Shell, led by the Gorek project team.

“This achievement commemorates the 110th anniversary of our Upstream business, here in Malaysia this year,” said Shell Malaysia Upstream vice president Ivan Tan.
