Petronas’ Malaysia LNG supply faces headwinds

December 6, 2020

Dateline 2020-11-09, Energy Voice:

The Petronas-operated Bintulu LNG export complex, in the eastern Malaysian state of Sarawak, desperately needs new gas supplies to maintain its exports in the near-to-medium term, as legacy fields mature.

Moreover, recent news that the fast-track schedule for PTTEP’s giant Lang Lebah field development appears to be slipping, does not bode well for the 29.3 million tonne per year LNG export facility, which is one of the world’s largest.

Thai upstream player PTTEP said on 5 November that it only expects to take a final investment decision (FID) for its proposed giant sour gas field in 2022. Initially, FID was targeted by 2021, after the field was discovered in 2019. Further slippage is possible.

Was this the acreage they bought from Murphy?

Dateline 2019-06-28, Bangkok Post:

SET-listed oil and gas explorer PTT Exploration and Production Plc has made a gas discovery off the shore of Sarawak in Malaysia, marking PTTEP’s biggest find ever.

Through wholly owned subsidiary PTTEP HK Offshore Ltd (PTTEP HKO), the company found the gas at Lang Lebah-1RDR2, the first exploratory well in the Sarawak SK410B project.

The subsidiary commenced drilling in March to a total depth of 3,810 metres in Lang Lebah-1RDR2. The well encountered 252 metres of net gas pay, indicating a multi-trillion-cubic-feet discovery, and was tested in a carbonate main target reservoir with a completion-constrained rate of 41.3 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) and 246 barrels of condensate per day (BCPD).
