Petrofac is pleased to announce that gas production from the Berantai field, offshore Malaysia, has commenced. Petrofac is Operator of the field and has led the development under a Risk Services Contract (RSC), working alongside its local partner SapuraKencana Petroleum, on behalf of Petronas, the Malaysian National Oil Company.
The Berantai field is located approximately 150km offshore Peninsular Malaysia, 10km south of the Tapis Field and 30km northeast of the Angsi Field. The development comprises a wellhead platform connected to a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, the FPSO Berantai. Gas is exported by a 30km subsea pipeline to the Petronas Carigali-operated Angsi Field and onwards into the Peninsular Malaysian gas grid.
Andy Inglis, Chief Executive, Petrofac Integrated Energy Services commented: “The Berantai project, delivered through the first RSC to be awarded in Malaysia, meets Petronas’ twin goals of growing domestic production and building local capability. It has required a tremendous effort from all the stakeholders and we are delighted this important milestone has been achieved.”
