Oil & Gas : Kimanis Sabah Oil & Gas Terminal Site.

As captured on 26 march 2011.

At the horizon, we can see some pile driver crane on duty.

Closed for construction. Open for bright future.
This project would be the best industry ever to revive the Sabah economy, aside of the agricultural and tourism along these years. We do have Labuan, mainly for service and maintenance industry related for oil & gas, but having an actual processing plant on the mainland, would benefit thousands.

From what I saw, the site was still on civil basics engineering such as piling and site leveling. Nothing yet installed, but perhaps the prefabrication of pipings, mechanical instruments, is ongoing somewhere else. I would rate the civil aspects has reached third quarter final of their masterplan.

Unfortunately no, it is not. I saw those construction company recruiting adv for structural and piping engineer in Feb 2011.

So I guess they are in the Site preparation Stage right now. Do you have any idea on how many Storage Tanks are going to be built in that Terminal?

No idea as well. As I quote, " The SOGT will be able to store 300,000 barrels of crude oil a day. Sabah’s oil production averages 200,000 bpd." link --> http://insightsabah.gov.my/article/read/374
