Rosmari-Marjoram fields, located 220km off the coast of Bintulu, will be powered by renewable energy, using 240 solar panels for the offshore platform.
Shell Upstream Director Zoe Yujnovich, said, “Rosmari-Marjoram will help to deliver a secure and reliable supply of energy, responsibly and efficiently. This demonstrates our Powering Progress strategy – powering lives, generating value, and reducing emissions by using renewable energy to power Rosmari-Marjoram.”
Ivan Tan, Country Chair and Senior Vice President Upstream Malaysia said, “The support and partnership from Petronas and the Government of Sarawak are critical to achieving this milestone with Rosmari-Marjoram.”
The Rosmari-Marjoram development is one of the strategic projects to ensure a sustained gas supply to the Petronas LNG Complex. The deepwater sour gas fields were discovered in 2014.
The project comprises a remotely operated offshore platform and onshore gas plant, with infrastructure that includes one of the longest sour wet gas offshore pipelines in the world stretching more than 200km.
Rosmari-Marjoram project is designed to produce 800MMscf/d, with gas production expected to start in 2026.
