Shell awards Malikai deepwater engineering studies

Sabah Shell Petroleum has awarded MMC AMEC a contract to provide basic engineering studies for the Malikai deepwater project offshore Malaysia.

The contract covers basic engineering studies for the flowlines, risers, topside, and hull for the Malikai platform, to be installed 110 km (68 mi) offshore the state of Sabah. The platform will be a dry-tree tension leg design -- topsides will be supported on a buoyant semisubmersible structure tethered to the seabed by tendons.
