Gumusut-Kakap gets FPS

Sabah Shell Petroleum Co. Ltd. received a semisubmersible floating production system (FPS) for Malaysia’s Gumusut-Kakap deepwater field offshore Sabah. The FPS was handed over to Sabah Shell in early June and is installed in about 1200m water depth. Once commissioned, it will be the largest offshore operating facility in Asia.

The FPS has the capacity to process up to 150,000 boe/d and will initially service seven subsea manifolds. The field’s full development system includes 19 subsea wells, linked to the FPS. An oil export pipeline will transport crude oil from the FPS to the Sabah Oil and Gas Terminal in Kimanis, Sabah. Sabah Shell operates the field with Petronas, ConocoPhilips, Sabah Ltd., and Murphy Sabah Oil Co. Ltd. as partners.
