Sabah Shell Petroleum, the operator of the Gumusut-Kakap (GK) semi Floating Production System located offshore Sabah, has completed its GK Phase 2 project.

The GK Phase 2 project involved the drilling of four additional subsea wells tied back to its semi Floating Production System (GK-Semi FPS).

At peak production, the four wells will add 50,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day to the GK-Semi FPS, sustaining its rated production capacity of 165,000 barrels per day. Located in water depths of 1,200 meters, the GK-Semi FPS was Shell’s first Deepwater development in Malaysia, starting production in 2014.

I would like to congratulate the team for yet another successful delivery of an important project for us both in Malaysia and globally,” said Simon Durkin, vice-president, Malaysia Upstream.

“Shell has been a pioneer in Malaysia’s exploration and production sector for more than a century and a global leader in deep-water exploration and production for more than 40 years. We are proud of our continued investment in Malaysia and utilising our global and local expertise to ensure the long-term sustainability of Malaysia’s energy resources.”

In addition to its timely completion and excellent safety performance, the GK Phase 2 project has realized cost savings of more than 35% since taking final investment decision in Q4 2017.

The Gumusut-Kakap project is a joint venture between Shell (29%, operator), ConocoPhillips (29%), PETRONAS Carigali (16.8%), PTTEP Sabah Oil (6.4%), PERTAMINA (2.7%) and others.
