According to Shell, Phase 2 will deploy the same single-combo riser technology that was used for the first time during Malikai Phase 1.
“Since coming online in 2016, the Malikai TLP project has allowed Shell to play an active role in helping Sabah and Malaysia develop their deepwater resources and related service industries,” said Simon Durkin, Vice-President, Malaysia Upstream. “Projects such as these demonstrate our ability to fully leverage our existing infrastructure to unlock value.”
The Malikai TLP project is a joint venture between Shell (35%, operator), ConocoPhillips Sabah Ltd. (35%) and PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd (30%).
