The Malikai oil field lies around 100 kilometres (60 miles) off Sabah, Malaysia, in waters about 500 metres (1,640 feet) deep. It comprises two main reservoirs with a peak annual production of 60,000 barrels per day (bbl/d). It is Malaysia’s third deepwater project after the Kikeh and Gumusut Kakap projects.

The platform, which floats on the surface of the sea while moored securely to the seafloor, produces and pipes oil 50km (around 30 miles) to the shallow-water Kebabangan platform for processing.

The objective of the Malikai project was to hook up two SCRs, which consists of an 8” gas pipeline and 10” production line.
