ExxonMobil Starts Production From Telok Gas Field
Project delivered on schedule and within budget
IRVING, Texas -- March 11, 2013
ExxonMobil has started production from the Telok natural gas field, located
offshore Malaysia in the South China Sea.
“The Telok development will help meet increasing demand for natural gas in
Peninsular Malaysia,” said Neil W. Duffin, president of ExxonMobil Development
Company. “It is one of many natural gas developments ExxonMobil will bring on
stream in the next few years around the world.”
The development concept of “design one, build many” was utilized to
efficiently develop the project and shorten construction and installation
timelines, allowing Telok to be completed on schedule and within budget.
The Telok A platform is the first phase of the Telok natural gas project,
which when completed will consist of two four-legged unmanned gas satellite
platforms. Full well stream gas will be produced via a new 16-mile pipeline to
the existing Guntong E platform for processing. A total of 14 development
wells are planned for the Telok A and B platforms.
The Telok gas field is located about 124 miles offshore the east coast of
Peninsular Malaysia. The field was developed under a gas production sharing
contract, and is a 50-50 joint venture between ExxonMobil, the operator, and
PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd.
CAUTIONARY STATEMENT: Estimates, expectations, and business plans in this
release are forward-looking statements. Actual future results, including
production rates, ultimate recoveries, and project plans and schedules, could
differ materially due to changes in market conditions affecting the oil and

projects; technical or operating factors; and other factors discussed under

13q-1 relating to government payment reporting. A single project for purposes
of that rule may encompass numerous properties, agreements, investments,
developments, phases, work efforts, activities, and components, each of which
we may also describe informally as a "project".
