The Gumusut-Kakap project includes the joint development of two ultra deep water discoveries – Gumusut and Kakap.
The fields are located within Blocks J and K, about 120km offshore from Sabah, Malaysia. Water depth is in the region is 1,200m (3,937ft).
Sabah Shell was the operator of Gumusut and Murphy Oil, the operator of the Kakap field. Development of the two fields was combined under an unitisation agreement signed by the partners in 2006.

China’s COSCO (Zhoushan) Shipyard Co., Ltd. (left) has won a contract worth over $23 million from a Malaysian shipowner covering construction of a float over launch barge.
The float over launch barge will measure 10.00 meters high, 38/46 meters wide, 160 meters long and will be capable of transporting and performing float over operations of offshore topside modules structures weighing up to 14,500 tons. It will also be capable of launching jackets up to 20,000 tons. Delivery of the float over launch barge to the shipowner is expected to take place in the last quarter of 2013.

Chinese shipbuilding experience is playing a key role in the construction of the world’s biggest container ships, the first of which, the Maersk Mc-Kinney Moller, is due to start sea trials on May 27.
Twenty of the ships, which can each carry 18,270 20-foot containers and at 399.25 metres long are nearly the length of four soccer pitches, are being built for Maersk Line by South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering.
Maersk awarded Daewoo two contractsin 2011 totalling US$3.8 billion for the Triple-E ships, named for their economies of scale, energy efficiency and environmental improvements.
Peter Bertelsen, lead hull superintendent at Maersk Maritime Technology, said a lack of capacity at Daewoo and its South Korea subcontractors meant 40 per cent of the steel used in each ship is fabricated into massive hull sections in China.
