The recently concluded Offshore Technology Conference Asia 2014 (OTCA) showed strong interest from major oil and gas (O&G) players towards investing in Malaysia.
RHB Research in a research note today said among the players were UK-based Petrofac Ltd, Talisman Malaysia Ltd, Murphy Sarawak Oil Co Ltd and Shell Malaysia.
The research house said Talisman Malaysia which was granted a progressive volume based (PVB) production-sharing contract (PSC) for its Kinabalu oil fields, wants to boost the improved oil recovery potential and reap synergies from the Samarang project, off Sabah.
The oil company is also looking at extension acreage for its SB309/310 field, off Sabah, with three to four well exploration programmes this year and boost the recovery rate of its 41 per cent-operated Block PM3 CAA, offshore Peninsular Malaysia to 40 per cent from 30 per cent, it added.
