ExxonMobil starts natural gas production from Telok Field

March 20, 2013

I received this notice from multiple parties. My initial reactions were ‘where is Telok,’ and ‘who was the design contractor? Was it sole sourced to a favourite blue-eyed entity?’ I know Technip didn’t get the contract.

Dateline 2013-03-11, for the Malaysian Insider:

ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Malaysia Inc, a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corp, has started natural gas production from the Telok field to meet increasing demand for natural gas in Peninsular Malaysia.

The field is located 200 kilometres offshore the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia in the South China Sea.

ExxonMobil in a statement today said the Telok A platform marked the first phase of the Telok gas development project under a gas production sharing contract between ExxonMobil as the operator and PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB).
