UpstreamOnline: E8 delivers first gas (Shell and its partner Malaysia’s state-run Petronas)

By Upstream staff

Shell and its partner Malaysia’s state-run Petronas, have pumped first gas from the E8 field off Sarawak, Malaysia.

E8 is part of Shell’s E11 hub integrated gas project and first gas from E8 marks a major milestone for the development.

Under the hub integration project, gas production from surrounding fields is channelled to the E11 complex for processing before being piped to Petronas’ liquefied natural gas complex at Bintulu.

One of five fields developed to ensure continued supply to the LNG Complex, E8 will make the E11 complex the biggest gas production facility in terms of volume in Sarawak waters. The other four fields are E11, F23, F6 and F13.

The other E11 satellite gas field developments, F13 West and F13 East, are expected to come on stream in the next three years, when the E11 complex’s production will peak.

Shell and Petronas each hold 50% of the E11 hub development, with Shell operating the project. and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia feature.
