Malaysia’s Sarawak awards key onshore acreage

July 24, 2021

Dateline 2021-06-21, Energy Voice:

The eastern Malaysian state of Sarawak, home to the country’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) export complex, has awarded its first onshore block to Petra Energy and Uzma, as it hopes to revitalise its onshore oil and gas industry after taking regulatory control from the federal government.

Malaysia’s Petra Energy will operate Block SK433 on behalf of joint venture partner Uzma following the award by state-energy company Petroleum Sarawak (PETROS). Block SK433 covers the Miri-Marudi area in Northern Sarawak. It also holds a discovery, Adong Kecil.

In a statement Friday, the Sarawak Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) said the award was the result of a competitive bidding exercise that was managed by PETROS since January this year.

The CMO said this marks a significant milestone for Sarawak as it looks forward to the resumption of active exploration and production activities onshore.
