“The Telok development will help meet increasing demand for natural gas in Peninsular Malaysia,” said Neil W. Duffin, president of ExxonMobil Development Company. “It is one of many natural gas developments ExxonMobil will bring on stream in the next few years around the world.”
The development concept of “design one, build many” was utilized to efficiently develop the project and shorten construction and installation timelines, allowing Telok to be completed on schedule and within budget.
The Telok A platform is the first phase of the Telok natural gas project, which when completed will consist of two four-legged unmanned gas satellite platforms. Full well stream gas will be produced via a new 16-mile pipeline to the existing Guntong E platform for processing. A total of 14 development wells are planned for the Telok A and B platforms.
The Telok gas field is located about 124 miles offshore the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. The field was developed under a gas production sharing contract, and is a 50-50 joint venture between ExxonMobil, the operator, and PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd.
