SapuraEnergy: B15 offshore field on track for first gas in 4Q 2017
Malaysia’s Sapura Energy, formerly known as Sapura Kencana, is working towards bringing online its offshore gas field in East Malaysia.
The company on Monday said the SK 310 B15 field development was on track, with first gas expected in the fourth quarter of 2017, in line with its previous statements.
SapuraKencana’s subsidiary, SapuraKencana Energy Sarawak (SKE), is the operator of Block SK310 PSC which was awarded by Petronas on June 17, 2008.
SapuraEnergy is the operator of the SK310 PSC with a 30% participating interest and partners Petronas Carigali with 40% and Diamond Energy Sarawak, a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation with 30%.
The B15 Gas Field which was discovered in December 2010 is located within the SK310 PSC area, offshore East Malaysia. The development comprises a central processing platform with a 35 kilometers long gas evacuation pipeline to be tied into the existing infrastructure.
The B15 gas field will deliver gas to the Malaysia Liquefied Natural Gas (MLNG) complex in Bintulu, Sarawak.
