SEA TRUCKS Group will work on the Malikai deep-water development project as part of a contract award from Sabah Shell Petroleum Company for the provision of flotel services.

Awarded in late June, the contract covers services for the Malikai deep-water development project, located 100 kilometres off Sabah, Malaysia, at a water depth of around 500 metres.

The platform is located within the area of the Block G production sharing contract in the South China Sea.

Outlined in the contract, the work consists of providing accommodation support services for 200 construction personnel.

The contract will be for a period of two months, with options to extend.

Sea Trucks nominated Jascon 34, a DP3 accommodation pipelay construction vessel, for the project.

The vessel features accommodation facilities for a maximum of 335 people and will be connected to the Malikai tension leg platform via its active heave compensated telescopic gangway.

Offshore activities are scheduled to commence in mid-2016, the company said.
