Apologies for the late entry.

  • First off, Synergy is looking for 5 lead safety engineers and 3 lead process engineers. Visit the Synergy website for contact details. And safety specialists. Ah, heck.

  • SGS (not Shell Global Solutions, which is a whole other article) is looking for  mess of engineers. What you would be interested in is the position of trainee engineers (less than 3 years). Send your applications here.

I don’t have a food recommendation this week. Anyone want to recommend a halal place in Bintulu that serves the local cuisine?


Kickdefella – To Cakerawala and Beyond – by Boat

August 9, 2009

I thought I’d post a link to Kickdefella’s blog entry where he writes about a visit to Cakerawala platform via boat flotilla, with members of the Kelantanese administration.

Nice night photo of the asset. And I see quite a lot of life jackets not done up properly.

I suspect CHOC’s internal memo writing staff are working themselves up in a fenzy about the unusual visit.


From Bernama – Kelantan Oil Royalty Issue

August 6, 2009

Taken from Bernama, dateline August 1:

KOTA BAHARU, Aug 1 (Bernama) — The federal government is looking into the question of oil royalty for Kelantan, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said Saturday.

He said the matter was still under study because of overlapping areas in the vicinity of the oil platform.

“When the study has been completed, I will send a representative to convey the result of the study to the state government,” he told reporters after opening the Kota Baharu Umno Division delegates meeting, here.

Kelantan is seeking RM1 billion in oil royalty from the federal government, claiming that the money constituted five per cent of the earnings from petroleum and liquefied natural gas extracted from offshore Kelantan since 2004 as per a report of the Statistics Department.

What ‘overlapping areas’ are being referred to? I know that the Joint Development Area is part of Kelantan costal waters, but you would think division of profits would have already been sorted out with neighbouring governments. If not, I pity CHOC.

And which oil platform we talking about? Isn’t it a gas platform that’s out there. Chakerawala, anyone? Or maybe they are talking about oil equivalent barrels (oeb)?
