The Malaysian subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell Sabah Shell Petroleum Company said that it has signed an offshore Master Service Agreement (MSA) with BMT.
The three-year agreement will see BMT provide maintenance oil and gas services for the Gumusut-Kakap and Malikai deepwater platforms in Malaysia, said a press release.
This is the second time BMT has been awarded an offshore services’ contract demonstrating continuity and Shell’s confidence in the BMT team, it said.
Isaac Chia, BMT’s Operations Manager in Kuala Lumpur said: “Working closely with Sabah Shell as a team to understand their expectations is key. The upgrades and systems’ installations for this contract with Sabah Shell further builds on BMT’s excellent track record in supplying major platform integrity monitoring systems to offshore oil and gas operators.”
Both deepwater platforms currently have BMT’s Marine Instrumentation Systems (MIS) and Marine Advisory Systems (MAS) installed. These systems play a critical role in supporting safe and efficient operations of the two offshore platforms.
BMT’s maintenance plan will cover major servicing aspects of these systems including calibration checks, software maintenance and updates, remote technical support and analysis. The MSA contract secured with Sabah Shell will allow BMT to provide servicing on the MIS/MAS instrumentation ensuring that its components remain fully functional and deliver accurate data.
BMT brings valuable experience to this project, and other deepwater oilfield projects, having regularly provided service and maintenance to over 75 platforms around the world.
The organisation provides integrity monitoring systems for a wide range of floating offshore oil facilities including the associated subsea risers and mooring systems. It delivers custom-engineered products from design through procurement, assembly, installation and operational support service.
