EXXONMOBIL Exploration and Production Malaysia Inc (Emepmi), a subsidiary of ExxonMobil Corp, has successfully started production of non-associated gas (NAG) from the Tabu field, 200km offshore Terengganu.

The Tabu NAG project, completed on schedule and within budget, was developed under the Gas Production Sharing Contract (GPSC) between Emepmi as the operator and co-venturer Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB) to help meet increasing gas demand in Malaysia. Emepmi and PCSB each holds a 50 per cent participating interest in the GPSC. "We are pleased with the start-up of Tabu NAG, which will contribute further towards Malaysia's energy security," said Emepmi chairman Liam M. Mallon.

The total project development cost is estimated at RM673 million. The project required 790,000 work hours to complete and was executed without a single lost-time injury to workers. Gas production is anticipated to peak at 180 million cubic feet per day.

Emepmi is currently producing oil from the Tabu field via two platforms. The Tabu A and Tabu B platforms, installed in 1986 and 1995 respectively, are located about 4km apart and some 7km from the Guntong E platform.
