ExxonMobil starts production from Damar gas field offshore Malaysia

ExxonMobil Exploration & Production Malaysia Inc. reported the startup of natural gas production from Damar field, which lies in 55 m of water about 200 km offshore eastern peninsular Malaysia.

Damar field has a projected capacity of 200 MMcfd of gas. ExxonMobil and joint-venture partner Petronas Carigali Sdn. Bhd. have planned 16 development wells that will tie back to a four-legged gas satellite platform. Full well stream gas will be produced via a 22-km pipeline to the existing Lawit A platform for processing.

The Damar startup follows the Telok gas development in Malaysia, which started production in March 2013 (OGJ Online, Mar. 11, 2013).

Damar was developed under a production-sharing contract signed by ExxonMobil, Petronas Carigali, and Petronas.

ExxonMobil E&P Malaysia in late 2012 awarded a contract to Malaysia Marine & Heavy Engineering Sdn. Bhd. for the engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning of the topsides and platform jacket for the Damar project.

ExxonMobil E&P Malaysia is the project’s operator with 50% interest, while Petronas Carigali holds the other 50%.
