Shell Says Yes To Renewable-Powered Offshore Platform In Malaysia

Sarawak Shell Berhad (SSB), a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc, has taken a final investment decision on the Timi Gas Development Project and, together with its partners PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd and Brunei Energy Exploration, will deliver SSB’s first wellhead platform in Malaysia that is powered by a solar and wind hybrid renewable power system.

The Timi field is situated approximately 125 miles (200 km) off the coast of Sarawak, Malaysia. The Timi development is designed to reach up to 50,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day at peak production and will transfer natural gas to the F23 production hub via a 50-mile (80-km) pipeline.

“Timi, which will be powered by a solar and wind hybrid power system, demonstrates Shell’s capabilities to innovate and deliver safe, reliable, and sustainable projects, in line with our commitment to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 in step with society,” said Wael Sawan, upstream director at Shell. “Shell is pleased to be able to progress this project in a competitive and responsible manner, as part of the vital role upstream plays in delivering Shell’s strategy and in support of economic growth in Malaysia.”
