Samsung Engineering announced that it had received an Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning (EPCC) contract worth USD$680 million from Sarawak Shell Bhd (SSB) to develop an onshore gas plant (OGP) in Sarawak’s Bintulu.
The South Korean Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Project Management (EPC&PM) company was able to receive this contract after competing and successfully emerging as the successful bidder from the dual Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED).
President and CEO of Samsung Engineering Sungan Choi commented that its “track record, regional expertise and sustainable investment in Sarawak, combined with our strategy to participate from FEED stage and rollover to execute a total solution in EPCC, proved to be the right strategy, so that Shell entrusted us with their OGP project in Sarawak. We’re gratified and honored to deliver a modern, sophisticated and premium Onshore Gas Plant for Shell in Sarawak.”
The project will take effect in two phases, that being limited scope prior to SSB obtaining its FID for the Rosmari Marjoram project with all of the remaining scope to be executed after SSB obtains FID.
The OGP plant will have the capacity to process up to 800 million cubic feet of gas per day. Samsung Engineering will execute the OGP project on an EPCC (engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning) basis. The OGP project’s RFSU (Ready for Start-up) is expected to be accomplished by the end of 2025.
Samsung Engineering is further looking into discovering new business opportunities by accumulating experience in the gas market and further will continue securing additional experiences in executing a FEED to EPC conversion projects.
The company has a proven track record in executing gas projects in Malaysia and is currently executing the Sarawak Methanol Project and developing the H2biscus Green Hydrogen/Ammonia project in Sarawak.
Additionally, Samsung Engineering will look to grow its future participation in additional FEED as well as EPC projects in Malaysia. Samsung Engineering is prepared to become a “Beyond EPC, Green Solution Provider” for a better future.
