KUALA LUMPUR: Shell and Petronas Carigali recently took the final investment decision (FID) to develop the E6 field, offshore Malaysia.

Discovered in 1970, the E6 field is the last field to be developed under the SK308 production sharing contract. SK308 is about 200km offshore Sarawak.

A joint statement issued on Wednesday said the development concept leverages on existing infrastructure by evacuating gas from E6 to the E8 platform located 16km away and crude oil to D35 located 66km away.

Shell Malaysia chairman Iain Lo said: “The development of the E6 field further strengthens Shell’s position in Malaysia. It will enable Shell to sustain gas supply to Malaysia LNG Tiga Plant and produce crude oil concurrently by 2017.”

Shell is the operator with 50% equity while Petronas Carigali holds the remaining 50% stake.

Shell Malaysia has interests of between 20% and 85% in 19 production sharing contracts offshore Malaysia. – Bernama
