Shell commits to investment on Timi, its first offshore wellhead platform in Malaysia to be powered by solar and wind

Aug 30, 2021

Sarawak Shell Berhad (SSB), a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc, announced that it has taken a final investment decision (FID) on the Timi gas development project and, together with its partners PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd and Brunei Energy Exploration, look forward to delivering this for Malaysia.

The Timi field is situated approximately 200 kilometres (km) off the coast of Sarawak, in Malaysia. The Timi development features SSB’s first wellhead platform in Malaysia that is powered by a solar and wind hybrid renewable power system. This unmanned platform is approximately 60% lighter than a conventional Tender Assisted Drilling (TAD) wellhead platform. This project also includes the drilling of two wells.
“Timi, which is powered by a solar and wind hybrid power system, demonstrates Shell’s capabilities to innovate and deliver safe, reliable, and sustainable projects, in line with our commitment to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 in step with society. Shell is pleased to be able to progress this project in a competitive and responsible manner, as part of the vital role Upstream plays in delivering Shell’s strategy and in support of economic growth in Malaysia,” said Wael Sawan, Shell Upstream Director.
The Timi development is designed to reach up to 50,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d) peak production and will evacuate its gas to the F23 production hub via an 80 km pipeline while supporting the future growth in the central Luconia area, off the coast of Sarawak.

As one of the pioneers in building the country’s energy industry, Shell Malaysia aims to lead in the country’s energy transition by increasing investment in lower carbon energy solutions, while pursuing competitive and carbon resilient Upstream investments.

Additional Information
  • Timi is a sweet gas field discovered in 2018 under the SK318 PSC.
  • It will have a new unmanned wellhead platform (WHP) tied back to the existing Shell operated F23 hub platform via a new 80km pipeline.
  • Timi will be developed as part of the SK318 Production Sharing Contract with Sarawak Shell Berhad (SSB) as the Operator holding 75% equity. The other two partners are PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd (15%) and Brunei Energy Exploration (10%)
  • Timi is located at approximately 252 km north-west of Bintulu, Sarawak and 202km north-west from Miri, Sarawak
  • Leveraging engineering expertise, early market engagement and driving competitive scoping have resulted in a design that is 60% lighter than conventional designs.
  • The Timi development concept supports Shell’s commitment towards providing cleaner energy solutions by adopting a solar and wind hybrid power generation system instead of conventional power generation systems that rely mainly on hydrocarbon combustion.

Shell delivers first gas from the Timi platform in Malaysia

28 Aug 2023

Sarawak Shell Berhad (SSB), a subsidiary of Shell plc, has announced that gas production has started at its Timi platform in Malaysia under the SK318 production sharing contract (PSC).

Timi features Shell’s first wellhead platform in Malaysia that is powered by a solar and wind hybrid power system. This unmanned platform is also more cost efficient, as a result of it being around 60% lighter in weight, than a conventional tender-assisted drilling wellhead platform that relies on oil and gas for power.

“Timi demonstrates we are delivering more value with less emissions,” said Zoe Yujnovich, Shell’s Integrated Gas and Upstream Director. “Bringing the project online is also an example of our focus on performance, discipline, and simplification. It shows our ability to innovate and deliver safe, reliable, and sustainable projects that support a balanced energy transition for Malaysia.”

Timi is designed to produce up to 50,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day of gas at peak production and will evacuate its gas through a new 80 kilometres (km) pipeline to the F23 production hub. The project supports the future growth in the central Luconia area, off the coast of Sarawak.

Shell is proud of its long and successful history in Malaysia. Under the stewardship of Malaysia Petroleum Management, PETRONAS, Shell remains committed to supporting the country’s economic progress and energy transition efforts with competitive and resilient investments.

  • Timi is located around 252 km north-west of Bintulu, Sarawak, and 202 km north-west of Miri, Sarawak.
  • Prior to Timi, Shell Malaysia’s first fully solar powered wellhead platform, the Gorek field, located 145 km offshore Malaysia, achieved first gas production on May 24, 2020.
  • In 2022, Shell Malaysia took a final investment decision on the Rosmari-Marjoram gas project, the largest integrated offshore and onshore project in Sarawak, which will be primarily powered by renewable energy. The offshore platform will use power from 240 solar panels, while the onshore plant is connected to the Sarawak grid system which is supplied mainly by hydroelectric plants.
