PTT Exploration and Production Plc (PTTEP) has started its natural gas production at Rotan and Buluh deepwater fields of Block H off the coast of Sabah, Malaysia, marking its move to strengthen investment in Malaysia.
The production will increase the company’s petroleum supply and sales volume in the neighbouring country.
The first gas production in Block H came after its wholly-owned subsidiary PTTEP HK Offshore Co successfully completed the Lang Lebah-2 appraisal well in the Sarawak SK 410B Project. The drilling result registered a new record for PTTEP’s largest gas discovery.

Malaysia’s state-owned Petronas said Thursday it has awarded the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning contract for its second floating LNG project, located offshore Sabah, to a partnership of Japan’s JGC and South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries.
Petronas said the EPCIC contract for PFLNG 2 follows the January 23 board approval of the final investment decision taken on the project.
The FLNG facility will be located at the Rotan field in Block H.
Murphy Oil, operator of the upstream block, had announced FID of the project early this month.

A final investment decision for the floating LNG liquefaction project at the Rotan field in Malaysia has been reached, and it is on track to achieving first gas by 2018, US company Murphy Oil said Thursday during a presentation to discuss its 2013 financial results.
Murphy operates Block H offshore Sabah, where the gas will be sourced, while Malaysia’s state-owned Petronas will operate the 1.5 million mt/year FLNG facility.
On a call with analysts, Murphy CEO Roger Jenkins said the FLNG project “is now fully sanctioned by both parties and the oil-linked gas terms agreed. This is a major milestone for both companies.”
Petronas had said in June last year that it was aiming for FID by the end of 2013.
