A pairing of Malaysia Marine & Heavy Engineering (MMHE) and Perunding Ranhill Worley (PRW) is in pole position to win an EPCI contract for phase two of what the operator is calling the world’s largest offshore carbon capture and storage (CCS) project.

Petronas said Kasawari, offshore Sarawak, East Malaysia, will capture 3 million-plus tonnes per annum of carbon dioxide.

Multiple sources with direct knowledge of the engineering, procurement, construction and installation tender process said MMHE and engineering partner PRW are in line for the contract for Kasawari phase two.
