Marine and Heavy Engineering Holdings Berhad has secured a contract from Petronas Carigali to undertake the Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Installation, and Commissioning services for the Kasawari Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) project, off the coast of Sarawak, offshore Malaysia.
The company was awarded the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) Contract in a FEED competition mode for this project early this year.
The EPCIC contract includes the construction of a 14,000-metric tonne (MT) topside, a 15,000-MT 8-legged jacket of Kasawari CCS platform and a bridge linking to the Kasawari Central Processing Platform (CPP). Upon completion, the platform will be installed in a water depth of 108 metres (m) within SK316 area, approximately 200 kilometres (km) offshore
from Petronas LNG Complex in Bintulu, Sarawak. Once completed, the Kasawari CCS project will be the largest offshore CCS project in the world by volume of carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) captured, with the ability to capture up to 3.3 million tonnes per annum of CO 2 .
A total of about 71 to 76 million tonnes of CO 2 from the Kasawari CCS project will be reinjected into the M1 field via pipeline, which is approximately 138 km away from the platform. Additionally, this facility will also be the world’s largest offshore platform fabricated to capture and store carbon. The Kasawari CCS project, the first-ever CCS project in Malaysia, is scheduled to start by the end of 2025 and will be part of the overall Kasawari Gas Development Project.
This contract is an alliance contract between MMHE and PCSB to execute the EPCIC scope of Kasawari CCS.
