Malaysia and China in stand-off near PTTEP’s appraisal drilling


Dateline 2020-11-30, Upstream:

The Chinese Coast Guard (CCG) and Royal Malaysian Navy have been involved in yet another standoff over oil and gas drilling in the South China Sea as tensions mount between regional powers over resources in the strategic sea area.

The CCG vessel 5402 in mid-November approached the Borr Drilling-owned jack-up Gunnlod, which is working for Thailand’s national upstream company PTTEP on Block SK 410B off Sarawak, East Malaysia, according to the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative (AMTI) of the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS).
