ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Malaysia Inc., a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation, announced recently the startup of natural gas production from the second phase of the Telok gas development project, the Telok B platform located off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
“The completion of the Telok B platform highlights the capability of Malaysian contractors to design, fabricate and install oil and gas production facilities in a safe and efficient manner,” said See Kok Yew, president of ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Malaysia Inc. and chairman of the ExxonMobil Subsidiaries in Malaysia. “The Telok field development is another successful partnership between ExxonMobil and PETRONAS Carigali that’s helping to ensure reliable gas supply to the nation.”
The Telok development required more than 4.8 million total work hours to complete and was executed without a single lost-time injury by local contractors. Drilling operations from Telok B commenced in September 2014 and full well stream natural gas is being produced via a 15.5-mile (25-kilometer) pipeline to the existing Guntong E platform for processing.
