Talisman holds hope for Sabah O&G jobs

April 8, 2016

Talisman, job provider.

Dateline 2016-02-19, Daily Express:

Talisman Malaysia Ltd is in the process of finalizing the design of a 3,700-tonne Wellhead Riser Platform and 350-tonne bridge that will link to the existing Kinabalu platform in the west coast of Sabah.

Construction of these new facilities, which started in April, is expected to generate new job opportunities for locals in the oil and gas sector, at a time when many players are feeling the crunch of falling oil prices.

The oil price dip has forced several companies to resort to cutting expenditure and workforce.

According to Talisman, the project would take about 18 months to complete.

“This development project will create opportunities for Malaysian suppliers and service providers involved in the fabrication, installation and commissioning phases, and also for the subsequent drilling operations that follow in the third quarter of 2017,” Talisman said in a statement.


Facilities at Kinabalu boon for Talisman Malaysia

February 25, 2016

Talisman is an affiliate of Repsol? Is that what the kids are calling it these days?

Dateline 2016-01-12, The Star:

Talisman Malaysia Ltd will be able to drill up to 10 new oil wells with deck space available to install additional equipment for future developments with the construction of new facilities under the Kinabalu redevelopment project.

The proposed facilities currently under detailed design comprise a 3,700-tonne wellhead riser platform and 350-tonne bridge that would link the new facilities to the existing Kinabalu platform, according to Spain-based Repsol regional executive director Asia and Russia, Ferdinando Rigardo.

Talisman is an affiliate of Repsol, an integrated oil and gas company which has activities in more than 40 countries and across the entire oil and gas value chain. Repsol had its presence in Malaysia since 2011, supplying lubricants to local manufacturing industries.


Repsol’s Talisman takeover not affecting Sabah

September 19, 2015

Really? You mean there aren’t an increase of tapas bars, and  4-hour siestas?

Dateline 2015-08-17, Daily Express:

Talisman Malaysia, operating Sabah’s Kinabalu Field crude oil platform off here is not affected by Repsol’s takeover of Talisman Energy.

“There is no change of (company) name for now,” said Talisman Malaysia vice president Duncan Smart who is also Sabah Assets Manager when asked by Daily Express.

Talisman Malaysia will intensify its development of the Kinabalu Field with the fabrication of a new additional platform to increase the productivity of its output, with further development exploration approved.

“Despite the decline in prices, we can justify our investments (off Sabah),” said Smart.

Spanish oil and gas firm Repsol bought over Talisman Energy for USD8.3 billion earlier this year in the global oil and gas shakeup following a slump in oil and gas prices is said to be a harbinger of things to come in the industry, according to some experts and analysts.

Happy First Hajj Flight Week. Donate to your favourite charity, buy my recommendations, or through my Amazon store. Or get the Young Turks series (all 4 books). Where are those corporate sponsors? Or throw donations at me.

  • I’m looking for jobs for 4Q2015. Send me your POs.
  • An associate of mine is looking for a technical safety part-time adviser. 2 Associates, actually. Needs to be needle sharp with respect to QRAs, and HSE safety cases. A calm demeanor to handle nonsensical questions from young engineers helps as well. Either that, or a drinking problem.
