The making of Malikai
Malikai, Shell’s latest deep-water project in Malaysia, has started producing oil. These videos detail the journey of its construction. They include moving the 27,500-tonne platform to sea and attaching its 13,800-tonne topsides to its legs. The final video shows how engineers overcame one of the biggest challenges facing deep-water platforms: vibrations caused by water currents.
