The platform is the latest of more than 20 major deep-water projects that Shell has delivered around the globe. It operates off the coast of Sabah state in Malaysia, producing oil from wells that stretch around 3 kilometres below the seabed. It is expected to have a peak annual average production of 135,000 barrels of oil per day, contributing up to 25% of the country’s production and providing important economic benefits. Tapping into resources at great water depths poses technical challenges. To overcome these challenges, we use advanced technologies, strict safety procedures and rigorous design, construction and maintenance standards.
Shell brought decades of expertise in deep water to the project, enabling the local workforce to develop the skills to construct the platform and run it from day to day. It was built by Malaysian Marine and Heavy Engineering (MMHE).
