MISC's MaMPU1 to Commence Ops at Vestigo's Anjung Kecil Field Off Sarawak

MISC Berhad (MISC), an international energy shipping and maritime solutions provider, reported Thursday the sail away of its Marginal Marine Production Unit (MaMPU 1), a fit-for-purpose floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility for the development of marginal fields, in a ceremony today at the MMHE East Yard, Pasir Gudang in Malaysia.

MaMPU 1 will deploy to the Anjung Kecil oil field, offshore Sarawak, Malaysia, where it will commence work for operator Vestigo Petroleum Sdn Bhd -- a unit of Malaysia's national oil company PETRONAS' upstream arm PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd.

The FPSO, with a storage capacity of 318,000 barrels, is designed to produce 15,000 barrels of oil per day and 25 million standard cubic feet per day (MMscf/d) of gas.

MISC said a transformation technology that it has adapted on MaMPU 1 is Sep-iSYS, a compact low pressure system that stabilizes the crude received from the reservoir for safe storage and subsequent export to the market. Through its Condensate Recovery System (CRS), MaMPU 1 is equipped to increase oil production via recovery from unwanted flaring gas.

The firm added that CRS, combined with Sep-iSYS will enable the production of an additional 50 barrels of oil per one million square cubic feet of flared gas. The CRS will also contribute to lowering carbon dioxide emission by 25 to 30 percent on daily flaring rates.
