Petra Resources has secured a subcontract for hook-up and commissioning (HUC) works for the Kasawari carbon capture and storage (CCS) project offshore Sarawak in Malaysia.
Running from March 2023 until December 2025, the contract has been awarded by Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering (MMHE).
Being developed by Malaysia’s Petronas, the Kasawari project is said to be one of the largest offshore CCS facilities worldwide.
Petronas Carigali made the final investment decision (FID) for the Kasawari carbon sequestration project in November 2022.
Located in Block SK316 off Bintulu, the project is expected to cut the volume of CO₂ emitted via flaring by 3.3 million tonnes (mt) a year.
Following the FID, the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) contract for the project was awarded to MMHE.

The project is also in line with Malaysia’s 2050 net-zero carbon emission goal.
Early this month, MMHE awarded Worley a contract to offer detailed engineering design services for the Kasawari CCS project.
The scope of work for Worley includes design and engineering services for the platform, subsea pipeline, jacket, and bridge.
