Then known as the French-owned Technip, before merging with the American-owned FMC Technologies in January 2017, the company first opened its doors in Malaysia in 1982. TechnipFMC in Malaysia has since become an oil and gas engineering and manufacturing hub in APAC with capabilities spanning within the country and across the region. The company has delivered many of the nation’s firsts deep-water projects- from Murphy Kikeh Spar (the first spar installed outside the Gulf of Mexico), the Gumusut-Kakap Semi-submersible, to Shell Malikai Tension Leg Platform. Recently, TechnipFMC delivered two of the world’s first Floating Liquefied Natural Gas (FLNG) facilities, PETRONAS FLNG Satu and Shell Prelude FLNG.
The APAC headquarters of TechnipFMC is located in Kuala Lumpur overlooking the regional operations in Malaysia as well as Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia and China. Its assets in Malaysia include three vessels (Deep Orient, G1201 and Island Performer) as well as two plants in Johor (Asiaflex Products and Nusajaya) and a base in Labuan.
Today, Malaysia continues to be decisive in TechnipFMC’s investment in the region. Having one of the major fuel reserves in Asia Pacific together with a well-established industry built by expertise and technology, Malaysia remains a key location for oil and gas operations in South East Asia.
