Exxon Starts Gas Production from Telok B Platform Offshore Malaysia
ExxonMobil on Thursday announced commencement of gas production from the second phase of the Telok gas development project, the Telok B platform located off the east coast of Malaysia.
The Telok development consists of two satellite platforms – Telok A, which started up in 2013, and Telok B. Both platforms combined are capable of producing more than 450 million cubic feet per day of natural gas.
“The completion of the Telok B platform highlights the capability of Malaysian contractors to design, fabricate and install oil and gas production facilities in a safe and efficient manner,” said See Kok Yew, President of ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Malaysia Inc. and Chairman of the ExxonMobil Subsidiaries in Malaysia.
Drilling operations from Telok B commenced in September 2014 and full well stream natural gas is being produced via a 25-kilometre pipeline to the existing Guntong E platform for processing.
