Dateline 2021-08-30, Energy Voice:

Shell and its partners, Petronas Carigali and Brunei Energy Exploration, have taken a final investment decision (FID) on the Timi sweet gas development offshore Malaysia that will help boost the country’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports. Significantly, Shell said the development marks its first offshore wellhead platform to be powered by solar and wind in Malaysia.

The Timi field is about 200 kms off the coast of Sarawak and its development is designed to pump up to 50,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d) at peak production, Shell said today. Shell said it will evacuate its gas to the F23 production hub via an 80 km pipeline while supporting the future growth in the central Luconia area, off the coast of Sarawak.


Gas issues could spur exploration offshore Malaysia

Dateline 2019-06-24, Offshore:

Malaysia’s need for additional gas supplies could trigger a new round of upstream investment in Southeast Asia, according to Wood Mackenzie.

There have been multiple breakdowns in the Sabah-Sarawak gas pipeline and Petronas’ large Kasawari gas project offshore Sarawak has still to receive the go-ahead.

This has resulted in a short-term supply problem for Malaysia’s Bintulu MLNG plant, and the shortage could continue until at least 2025, when new fields are due to come onstream such as Kasawari, Jerun, Timi, Rosmari, and Marjoram.
