Repsol Oil and Gas Malaysia Ltd is on track to meet the company’s target after starting to produce gas at one of six oil wells in the Bunga Pakma Joint Development Area.

Repsol Malaysia Business Unit director Jorge Milathianakis said the production at Bunga Pakma’s first oil well was the result of collaboration with partners Petronas and PetroVietnam.

He said the first gas production was not only implemented on schedule, but also at a lower cost than expected.

“The main contributing factor of the success of this project is due to the strong support from our two partners,” Milathianakis said, adding that most of the gas produced will be purchased by Vietnam and the balance used in Malaysia.

Spanish integrated producer Repsol has ramped up output at the Kinabalu field in Malaysia to 14,500 barrels of oil equivalent per day, after it started production in the fourth quarter of 2017, a company spokesman told S&P Global Platts on Tuesday.

Repsol started operating the offshore field in Malaysia’s Sabah basin in 2012. The companies invested a total of around $150 million to boost output from the mature field — including the installation of a bridge-linked wellhead platform, which was installed during summer.

Prioritising safety of fisherman around offshore platforms

The Sahabat Maritim programme is an efficient platform for oil-and-gas companies and enforcement agencies to engage with fishermen on safety around offshore platforms.

Repsol Oil and Gas Malaysia Ltd stakeholder relations manager Farid Jaafar said the programme was a collaborative effort between Petronas, the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) and oil-and-gas companies.

“I think Sahabat Maritim is an excellent initiative. In the past we used to do things separately. It makes more sense to collaborate as we all work in the same area, namely offshore in the South China Sea.

“The Sahabat Maritim programme allows us all to collaborate and jointly engage the fishing community. It makes it more efficient,” he said at a media briefing on Repsol’s projects here yesterday.
