Repsol SA is exploring options for its Malaysian upstream operations including a potential sale as the Spanish oil company reviews its global portfolio, according to people familiar with the matter.
The Malaysian assets could attract interest from other energy companies in the region, the people said, asking not to be identified because the matter is private. The asset review comes as Repsol is working on a new strategic plan, which is expected to be presented in the first half of the year.
Repsol owns rights to six development blocks in Malaysia with a net surface area of 3,126 square kilometers (1,207 square miles), according to its website. Its major upstream projects include Kinabalu, a mature offshore oilfield located in the west of the Malaysian basin of Sabah. Repsol holds a 60% stake in the project, while state-owned Petroliam Nasional Bhd, known as Petronas, owns the remaining 40%.
