Aeriel of boat towing oil rig into Gumusut-Kakap field

Located offshore Sabah in Malaysia, the Gumusut-Kakap field lies in water of up to 1,220 metres deep, and is the first deep-water opportunity for Shell in the country. The field is being developed using 19 subsea wells, with oil exported via a pipeline to a new oil and gas terminal, which will be built in Kimanis, Sabah.

Given the size and scope of the project, our engineers and Petrophysicists have had the challenge of developing safe and efficient ways of extraction, such as re-injecting extracted natural gas into the reservoir to help improve overall oil recovery.

Field like Gumusut-Kakap require excellent Petrophysicists who wish to develop their career in one of the world’s leading energy companies.
