Happy Happy Week. Buy my recommendations, or through my Amazon store. Or get the Young Turks series (all 4 books). Where are those corporate sponsors? Or throw donations at me.

  • I hear Hess is looking for a number of metering and measurement engineers. Heck, I should be a shoe in.

Support your local bookshop!  Bookalicious at The Summit Subang is a good choice. I think they focus on trilogies, quadrilogies, and other ologies. Tell them I sent you, and enjoy the look of perplexity on their faces. Those of you who have dropped my name, thanks!

Food choice of the week? How if you visit Vietnam, how about visiting and updating GoHalalVietnam! for your food needs. For your other needs, talk to your local tour guide/ concierge / man on the street.

As crude prices are low, you need all the help you can get to nail that elusive 2k job:

December 7, 2013

Dateline 2013-10-08, Platts:

Production from the first phase of the $5.2 billion North Malay Basin project, which envisages development and commercialization of nine stranded gas fields offshore Terengganu in Peninsular Malaysia, is scheduled to begin by the end of 2013.

“The early production system phase will be ready by the end of 2013 and the full field development phase will be ready in 2017,” a spokesman with Malaysia’s national oil and gas company Petronas said in an email.

Petronas’ upstream arm, Petronas Carigali, and the Malaysian subsidiary of US-based Hess in June 2012 signed three production sharing contracts, paving the way for the implementation of the North Malay Basin project. The three PSCs, in which Petronas Carigali and Hess have an equal 50% stake, are for blocks PM302, PM325 and PM326b.
