I didn’t know you could do force majare on a grade. 2020 Uni grads, go find a lawyer!

Dateline 2020-12-24, The Edge:

Malaysia’s Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) has declared force majeure on two crude oil grades following production issues, four trade sources said yesterday.

The disruption to Miri and Cendor crude supplies has reduced Malaysia’s oil exports this month and supported spot prices in the region. 

Miri crude production was reduced after a ship hit an oil production platform off Sarawak in late October, the sources said. 

It was not immediately clear when Miri’s output could return to normal.

From Offshore – Petrofac looking to boost Malaysia production

March 25, 2010

I think this isn’t news anymore, but here it is out in the open. Don’t know why the link is called ‘Petrobras’ though. Taken from the Offshore Magazine, dateline 2010-03-15:

KUALA LUMPUR — Petrofac’s Energy Developments division is considering a second-phase development of Block PM304 offshore Peninsular Malaysia.

The company operates the Cendor oil field on the license, which last year averaged production of 14,400 b/d, down slightly on levels in 2008. Petrofac’s Engineering & Operations division installed a Caltec Wellcom multiphase boosting system on one of the wells, which led to a substantial increase in output. As a result, further units may be installed.

Petrofac and its partners Petronas, PetroVietnam, and Kufpec have also drilled numerous successful near-field appraisal wells. They have commissioned a front-end engineering design study for a second-phase program, and expect to submit a field development proposal during the second half of 2010.
