Our first deep-water project in Malaysia uses advanced Shell technology to safely produce oil from the Gumusut-Kakap field in seas 1,200 metres (3,900 feet) deep. With an annual peak oil production of around 148,000 barrels a day, the platform contributes significantly to Malaysia’s oil production.
Gumusut-Kakap was built entirely in Malaysia, allowing Shell to share its deep-water expertise with local companies and to help create an offshore industry hub in the country. Read the project press release and see photos on Flickr
