Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Sdn Bhd (MMHE), a wholly owned subsidiary of Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Holdings Berhad (MHB), has secured a contract from Sarawak Shell Berhad (SSB) to undertake the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services of the offshore platform for the Rosmari-Marjoram gas project, off the coast of Sarawak, offshore Malaysia. The platform will comprise a topside, a 4-legged jacket and piles.


Upon completion, the platform will be installed in a water depth of 140 metres (m) within the SK318 area, off the coast of Bintulu, Sarawak.

This unmanned platform will be primarily powered by renewable energy where it will utilise power from solar panels. With a design life of 20 years, it will cater for up to 800 million standard cubic feet of gas per day with a start-up targeted in 2026 supplying natural gas to the PETRONAS LNG Complex in Bintulu, Sarawak.

The Rosmari-Marjoram gas project is currently undertaken by SSB (Operator of the SK318 Block) and PETRONAS Carigali Sdn. Bhd.

Pandai Othman, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of MHB said, “We are honoured to have been entrusted with such a significant project from SSB. To us, this project award is not just another achievement for our record books but in fact, it signifies our strong and lasting partnership with SSB in many years to come.

The announcement of the Final Investment Decision by SSB for the project on Monday, 5th September 2022, followed by the award of this contract to MHB also indicates the beginning of the revitalisation of the oil and gas industry in Malaysia that has long been impeded due
to the pandemic and economic slowdown causing oil and gas developers to be more cautious in their CAPEX spending for new developments.

Apart from our ultimate aim to deliver this project safely and timely, we are pleased to say that this project is aligned with our commitment to providing cleaner energy solutions through the utilisation of renewable energy to power the platform.
