Sarawak Shell Berhad (SSB), a unit of energy major Shell, has commenced gas production at the Timi platform, offshore Malaysia.

Discovered in 2018, Timi is a sweet gas field that comes under the SK318 production sharing contract.

Timi is situated approximately 202km north-west of Miri and 252km north-west of Bintulu, both in Sarawak.

At its peak, Timi is expected to produce up to 50,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day of gas, which will be transported to the F23 production hub via a brand-new 80km pipeline.

With a 75% stake, SSB is the operator of the Timi platform, while the other two partners are PETRONAS Carigali and Brunei Energy Exploration, holding 15% and 10% stake, respectively.

According to Shell, Timi has the country’s first wellhead platform powered by a solar and wind hybrid power system.

Due to approximately 60% less weight than a typical tender-assisted drilling wellhead platform that depends on oil and gas for power, this unmanned platform is also more cost-effective, the oil and gas company added.

Shell integrated gas and upstream director Zoe Yujnovich said: “Timi demonstrates we are delivering more value with less emissions. Bringing the project online is also an example of our focus on performance, discipline and simplification. It shows our ability to innovate and deliver safe, reliable and sustainable projects that support a balanced energy transition for Malaysia.”

Last week, it was reported that Shell is looking to sell its Singapore-based Bukom oil refinery as part of a strategic business review.
