Offshore staff

HOUSTONConocoPhillips has begun production from the Kebabangan gas field, located 60 mi (97 km) offshore Malaysia. Production will ramp up as pipeline capacity becomes available.

“This is the third major project startup planned in Malaysia this year, with Siakap North-Petai brought onstream in the first quarter and the Gumusut-Kakap floating production facility starting up in October,” says Matt Fox, executive vice president, Exploration and Production.

Project startups in Malaysia are expected to add 60,000 boe/d to the company’s production volumes by 2017.

The Kebabangan integrated drilling and production platform is in a water depth of 450 ft (137 m). Production from the field will initially come from six wells, with gas exported via pipeline to the Sabah Oil and Gas Terminal in Kimanis.

The field is operated by Kebabangan Production Oil Co., a joint operated company with ConocoPhillips Sabah Ltd. and Shell Energy Asia Ltd. each holding a 30% interest and Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd holding a 40% interest.
