A final investment decision (FID) has been made to proceed with the development of the Rosmari-Marjoram gas project by PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd (20%) and Sarawak Shell Berhad (80%, Operator).
The Rosmari-Marjoram oilfield, which lies 220 kilometers (km) off the coast of Bintulu, Sarawak, Malaysia, will be run on renewable energy, with the offshore platform being powered by solar energy.
“Rosmari-Marjoram will help to deliver a secure and reliable supply of energy, responsibly and efficiently,” said Shell Upstream Director Zoe Yujnovich.
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. Shell has a long and proud history in Sarawak, and we look forward to contribute further to Sarawak and Malaysia’s economic growth through investments in competitive and resilient projects.”
One of the crucial initiatives to guarantee a steady supply of gas to the PETRONAS LNG Complex is the Rosmari-Marjoram development. The project includes an onshore gas plant and remotely controlled offshore platform, as well as one of the world’s longest offshore pipelines for sour wet gas that stretches more than 200 kilometers. The project Rosmari-Marjoram is intended to produce 800 MMscf/d of standard cubic feet of gas per day. In 2026, gas production is anticipated to begin.
