Before or after the oil crash of ’14?

Dateline 2014-12-12, Borneo Post Online:

Petronas, through its upstream arm, Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd, will invest between US$500 million and US$1 billion to develop the K5 high carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration gas field off the coast of Sarawak until 2018.

For this purpose, Petronas Carigali has entered into an agreement with four companies, namely Technip Consultant (M) Sdn Bhd, UOP Malaysia Sdn Bhd, Twister BV and Generon Asia Sdn Bhd to provide the technology for the gas extraction.

Petronas Carigali head technology, technical global (sic) Dr Nasir Darman said Petronas would develop the world’s first offshore CO2 cryogenic distillation facility to enable it to recover four trillion square cubic feet (TSCF) of hydrocarbon gas from the 21 TSCF gas reserve at the field.
