Malaysian operator Petronas Carigali is carrying out studies for the potential deployment of a floating production, storage and offloading vessel on its Sepat oilfield offshore Peninsular Malaysia.

The Sepat field has been producing for almost a decade through an early production system that comprises a mobile offshore production unit, and a floating storage and offloading vessel.

The existing production system has a reported capacity to produce 20,000 barrels per day of oil and was delivered about 10 years ago by a joint venture of Petrofac, Bumi Armada and Kencana HL.
