Petronas to Use Honeywell UOP Tech at Kasawari Gas Field

Malaysian oil and gas company Petronas Carigali will use Honeywell UOP modular natural gas processing technology at the Kasawari gas field offshore Sarawak, Malaysia.Honeywell UOP said Petronas would use its technology in the development of a 900 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) offshore gas purification plant in the Kasawari gas field in the South China Sea. The Kasawari gas field was discovered by Petronas in 2011.UOP’s acid gas removal technology that removes contaminants such as carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, and mercury from natural gas, will be used at the facility. Once

of the XO-450 USVs in service with four more vessels under construction to be added to the fleet this year.  In a recent deployment, a XOCEAN XO-450 USV completed a live seabed-to-shore data harvesting mission from an array of Sonardyne pressure monitoring transponders at the Ormen Lange natural gas field off the coast of Norway. The 30 sensors measure and record pressure, temperature and inclination data at the seafloor at 800-1,100 meters depth. The USV transited more than 160 nautical miles from Kristiansund out to the Ormen Lange field, spent 12 hours on station retrieving data from the sensors
