Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas) announced Sunday that oil production from the Balai field in the Balai Cluster Risk Service Contract (RSC) area offshore Sarawak, Malaysia has commenced Nov. 6.
The field’s first oil was achieved utilizing an early production vessel (EPV) as a part of the RSC area’s extended well testing (EWT) program.
The Balai Cluster RSC was awarded in August 2011 to BC Petroleum Sdn Bhd, a partnership between Roc Oil (Malaysia) Pty Ltd, Dialog D & P Sdn Bhd and Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd. It is the second RSC that has successfully achieved oil production after the Berantai gas field.
