POSCO International wins right to explore gas fields off Malaysian Peninsula


Wait,

PM524 minefield?

Dateline 2021-08-10, Aju Business Daily:

 POSCO International, a trading arm of South Korea’s steel group, will work with Petronas, a Malaysian state oil and gas company, to explore gas fields in waters of the east coast of the Malaysian Peninsula.

In an international bid, POSCO International said it has won the right to explore and operate the PM524 minefield where Petronas already operates a gas field. The South Korean company aims to sign a product distribution contract within this year after coordinating with Petronas on detailed conditions.

POSCO International has picked promising mining areas by checking seismic waves and drilling data. The company will hold an 80 percent stake, along with the right to operate, while the remainder will be controlled by Petronas’ subsidiary, Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of the Malaysian state company.
