Shell commits to develop Timi field offshore Malaysia

Powered by solar and wind sources, the Timi field is expected to have a peak production rate of up to 50,000boe/d.

Royal Dutch Shell subsidiary Sarawak Shell (SSB) has made a final investment decision on the Timi gas development project offshore Malaysia.

Situated approximately 200km off the coast of Sarawak, the Timi project involves the drilling of two wells and the development of an unmanned wellhead platform.

Powered by a hybrid solar and wind power system, the unmanned platform will be tied back via a new 80km pipeline to the existing Shell-operated F23 hub platform.

According to Shell, the unmanned platform would be about 60% lighter compared with a conventional tender-assisted drilling wellhead platform.

In a statement, Shall said: “The Timi development concept supports Shell’s commitment towards providing cleaner energy solutions by adopting a solar and wind hybrid power generation system instead of conventional power generation systems that rely mainly on hydrocarbon combustion.”

The Timi field is expected to have a peak production capacity of up to 50,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d).

Shell upstream director Wael Sawan said: “Timi, which is 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.”

Shell operates the Timi field in the SK318 production-sharing contract with a 75% stake. Other project partners include Petronas (15%) and Brunei Energy Exploration (10%).

Earlier this month, Shell and its partners in the Libra consortium have taken a final investment decision on the Mero-4 floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel for deployment at the Mero field, offshore Brazil.

The Mero-4 FPSO will have a production capacity of 180,000 barrels of oil per day.
