First onshore oil & gas find in Malaysia in 24 years


Didn’t they find oil onshore Kelantan a while back? Was it hushed up?

Ah, now I know where the Asam Paya field is.

Dateline 2013-01-19:

Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) has made an onshore oil and gas discovery in Sarawak, the first after 24 years, after Asam Paya Field in 1989, also in Sarawak.

About 349 metres of net hydrocarbon thickness was found in the Adong Kecil West-1 well after Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd and its joint-venture partner, JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration (Onshore Sarawak) Ltd, drilled the well in Block SK333, which is located about 20km northeast of Miri.
