MISC Berhad saw the sailaway of its Marginal Marine Production Unit (MaMPU 1), a fit-for-purpose FPSO for the development of marginal fields, in a ceremony this week at the MMHE East Yard, Pasir Gudang.

The first deployment of MaMPU 1 will be at Anjung Kecil oil field, offshore Sarawak, which is currently being operated by Vestigo Petroleum Sdn. Bhd. on behalf of Petronas Carigali Sdn. Bhd.
MaMPU 1 was converted from an oil tanker and has a storage capacity of 318,000 bbl, designed to produce 15,000 b/d with 25 MMscf/d of gas handling capacity. One transformation technology that MISC has adapted on MaMPU 1 is Sep-iSYS, a compact low pressure system that stabilizes the crude received from the reservoir for safe storage and subsequent export to the market.
Through its condensate recovery system (CRS), MaMPU 1 is designed for increased oil production via recovery from unwanted flaring gas. CRS, combined with Sep-iSYS will enable the production of an additional 50 bbl per 1 MMscf of flared gas.
In line with MISC’s initiatives to reduce carbon footprint for gas emissions, it is expected that the CRS will contribute to lowering CO2 emission by 25% to 30% on daily flaring rates. This is consistent with MISC’s mission to operate responsibly and proactively minimizing its impact on the environment where possible, the company said.
MISC is the first in the region to introduce the technologies on a floating asset. This advancement will benefit in sustaining MISC’s position as the one of the leading marginal fields solutions providers.
