SPE Student Chapter PETRONAS Visits Kencana

The PETRONAS Chapter organised a trip to the Kencana Fabrication Yard. The trip enabled students to have practical exposure in a fabrication yard that manufactures and assembles different parts of production facilities, process skids, drilling rigs and various kinds of platforms.

Students were given an overview of Kencana Petroleum operations undertaken at its fabrication yard.  The students were impressed by the company’s profile and projects that had been accomplished.  They found the completion of world’s tallest self-elevating, re-locatable wellhead platform (150m) project extremely interesting.

An informative tour was given around the Yard, which included the CPP (Central Processing Platform), Engineering Offices, Jackets and Piles yard, and the Construction yard.  Engineers leading the tour were happy to answer questions.  For most of the students, it was the first time they had observed these things, and they enjoyed relating their experience to theory learned in class.
