Article ‘Kenapa BN Mahu Sangat Rampas Kelantan’ – Take 2


Continuing my expansion of the above article, I thought I would list down the operators and comments of the acreage listed.

  • Blok A18 – as the original author says, the acreage is operated by the Carigali Hess Operating Company (CHOCas its known to friends). It’s located in the Malaysia Thailand Joint Development Area (JDA)
  • Blok B17 – the PSC for this area is PETRONAS Carigali (JDA) Sdn Bhd, also in the JDA.
  • Block C19 – the PSC for this area is Carigali-PTTEP International Operating Company (CPOC), also in the JDA.
  • PM3 – operated by Talisman (Malaysia) Ltd.
  • Sub-Blok Ular – operated by PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB).
  • PM301 & PM302 – CS Mutiara, though I’m not sure if they have had to relinquish the acerage yet. It’s interesting to note that this aceragetouches the Kelantanese shoreline.
  • PM303 – Shell, PSC awarded in 1999, though yet to produce.
  • PM311 & 312 – joint venture between Murphy Peninsular Malaysia Oil Co Ltdand PCSB, yet to produce.

So, of the fields listed by the author, 3 are in the JDA, one is in Kelantanese waters, and the rest are in Terengganu waters.

It’s interesting to note that we do not have a JDA for disputed resources between Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei. Would that have reduced the amount of hydrocarbons that could be claimed by Sabah and Sarawak?

    oil?

    I would express my opinion that irrespective of BN, or the opposition, whoever governs must have the people at heart.

    Although I am not from Trengganu or Kelantan, I believe some higher weightage of oil revenue should be put into these states (as with Sabah and Sarawak) as they are part of Malaysia, and needs to be develop together with the whole nation.

    Malaysians are Malaysians, and if any party tries to claim a state solely for its resources, I would feel quite weary. The right mindset is that they should fight for a state because they can make it better for the people.
