Shell platform for Timi gas field to be powered by green energy

November 22, 2021

Umm, haven’t we had quite a few platforms running by green energy? I hear about them, usually accompanied by swearing as to how big solar panels are.

Dateline 2021-11-08, The Star:

Sarawak Shell Bhd has awarded the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for a wellhead platform for Timi gas field, offshore Miri, to Brooke Dockyard & Engineering Works Corp. The unmanned platform will be Shell’s first wellhead platform in Malaysia powered by solar and wind hybrid power system. Timi is a sweet gas field discovered in 2018 under the SK318 PSC 200km offshore Miri, in which Sarawak Shell as the operator holding 75% equity.


Investment nod for Shell’s Timi gas project off Malaysia

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.
