Petronas Carigali has commenced gas production at its new mobile offshore production unit (MOPU) offshore Sarawak, Malaysia. The T7 Elise MOPU is a newly constructed unit designed as a part of the Bayan redevelopment gas project Phase II. The facility is capable of exporting up to 100 million cubic feet of gas daily to the Bintulu Malaysia LNG (MLNG) facility in Sarawak.
Meanwhile, Tanjung Offshore Services will provide the operation and maintenance (O&M) services for the MOPU.
The Bayan project is located 30 km south of the West Acis field within the Balingian production sharing contract area. As part of this new project, four wells will be drilled from the BYDP-C platform, while the existing infrastructure of the brownfield will undergo modifications and upgrades.
