AsianOil: Shell Sarawak delivers first gas from Malaysia’s Timi field

Sarawak Shell Berhad (SSB) announced last week that it has brought first gas into production at the Timi field offshore Sarawak in Malaysia. SSB, a subsidiary of Shell plc, said it is the oil giant’s first wellhead platform powered by a solar and wind hybrid power system. Such a system makes the unmanned platform more cost-efficient, as it is about 60% lighter in weight rather than a conventional tender-assisted drilling wellhead platform that relies on oil and gas for power, SSB said in a statement.

SSB operates the gas field through the SK318 production sharing contract (PSC). SSB holds 75% of Timi, a sweet gas field discovered in 2018. Petronas Carigali owns 15% of the contract and Brunei Energy Exploration has 10%.
