Telok Gas Development Project, Malaysia.


The Telok gas development project was developed under a gas production sharing contract between ExxonMobil, as the operator, Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB) and PETRONAS. ExxonMobil and PCSB each hold a 50 percent interest in the project.
ExxonMobil and PCSB advanced the development of the field under the terms of the gas production sharing contract with PETRONAS to meet increasing demand for natural gas in Peninsular Malaysia. It is one of several upstream investments announced under Malaysia’s Economic Transformation Programme in 2011, which will see ExxonMobil and PCSB invest over RM10 billion in new oil and gas assets to help ensure reliable and sustainable energy supplies for Malaysia.
Located 200 kilometres offshore the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, the Telok development consists of two four-legged unmanned gas satellite platforms. Full well stream natural gas is being produced via a new 25 kilometre pipeline to the existing Guntong E platform for processing and a total of 14 development wells are planned.
Fabrication of the Telok A platform began in October 2011, and the platform jacket was installed in September 2012. The platform topside was installed in October 2012 and a jackup drilling rig was subsequently mobilised to the platform to commence drilling operations. Startup activities were safely conducted offshore during the monsoon period to achieve this milestone.
