Petronas contractor Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering has awarded Petra Resources the hook-up and commissioning contract for Petronas’s 3.3-million tpy Kasawari offshore carbon capture and storage project.

Petronas Carigali Sdn. Bhd. contractor Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Sdn. Bhd. has awarded Petra Energy Bhd.’s Petra Resources subsidiary the hook-up and commissioning contract for Petronas’s 3.3-million tonne/year Kasawari offshore carbon capture and storage (CCS) project. The contract will run from March 2023 through December 2025.

Petronas last year took final investment decision on the Kasaswari CCS project in Block SK316 200 km offshore Bintulu, Sarawak, in 108 m of water (OGJ Online, Nov. 30, 2022). Worley earlier this month won the detailed engineering and design contract for the project’s 14,000-tonne topside, jacket, bridge to the central processing platform, and subsea pipeline. Baker Hughes at the start of the year won Kasawari CCS’s compression contract (OGJ Online, Jan. 4, 2023).

Captured carbon dioxide will be injected into the depleted M1 field, 138 km from the platform. The 3-tcf Kasawari natural gas development project is expected to start production this year, with Kasawari CCS to follow in 2025.
