Our first deep-water project in Malaysia uses Shell’s advanced technology to safely produce and pipe oil from the Gumusut-Kakap field beneath seas 1,200 metres (3,900 feet) deep. With an annual peak oil production of around 135,000 barrels a day, the platform contributes up to 25% of Malaysia’s oil output.

Gumusut-Kakap was built entirely in Malaysia, allowing Shell to share its decades of deep-water expertise to boost local companies and help in the government’s aim to create an offshore industry hub in the country. Read the project press release and see photos on Flickr
