SISGES Project Kicks Off with Groundbreaking Ceremony for Onshore Gas Plant 1
BINTULU, 21 September 2023 – The Sarawak Integrated Sour Gas Evacuation System (SISGES) project officially kicks off today with the groundbreaking ceremony for the first phase development of its onshore gas plant in Bintulu.
The Premier of Sarawak, Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr Abang Haji Abdul Rahman Zohari Tun Abang Haji Openg officiated the event. Also present were Sarawak Minister of Food Industry, Commodity and Regional Development, Dato Sri Dr Stephen Rundi Utom; Sarawak Minister of Transport, Dato Sri Lee Kim Shin; PETRONAS Senior Vice President of Malaysia Petroleum Management (MPM), Mohamed Firouz Asnan; PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd’s Chief Executive Officer, Hasliza Othman; and Shell Malaysia Country Chair and Senior Vice President Upstream Malaysia, Siti Hurrairah Sulaiman.
The SISGES scheme was envisioned to monetise more than 10 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of gas discoveries with high contaminants, off the coast of Sarawak. It will be implemented in two phases, comprising a series of upstream gas fields and pipelines development, followed by the feeding of gas into two onshore gas plants (OGPs). Both phases are sited in the Petchem Industrial Park in Tanjung Kidurong. At full capacity, the scheme will supply about a third of Sarawak’s gas demand.
