MMHE to build platform for Rosmari-Marjoram gas project

Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering (MMHE) has secured a contract from Shell to undertake the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services of the offshore platform for the Rosmari-Marjoram gas project offshore Malaysia, the company said on October 11.

The platform will comprise a topside, a 4-legged jacket and piles. Upon completion, the platform will be installed in a water depth of 140 m within SK318 area, off the coast of Bintulu, Sarawak.

This unmanned platform will be primarily powered by renewable energy where it will utilise power from solar panels. With a design life of 20 years, it will cater for up to 800mn ft3/day of gas with a start-up targeted in 2026 supplying natural gas to the Petronas LNG Complex in Bintulu.

The project is operated by Sarawak Shell, a unit of Shell. The final investment decision on the project was announced in September.
