Tg. Baram acreage may be returned?

Dateline 2016-08-08, Rigzone:

Malaysia’s upstream oil and gas services company Uzma Berhad, holder of a minority stake in the Tanjung Baram oil field in Block SK307 offshore Sarawak, is unfazed by talks that the risk service contract (RSC) for the acreage might be cancelled amid cost rationalization initiative undertaken by the country’s national oil firm Petroliam Nasional Berhad (PETRONAS), local media The Star reported Saturday.

Such views were triggered recently after PETRONAS reached an agreement last month with the joint venture comprising Petrofac Energy Developments Sdn Bhd and SapuraKencana Petroleum Berhad’s subsidiaries for the cessation of the Berantai RSC located in Block PM309 offshore Terengganu, Malaysia.

“The RSC’s cessation will allow PETRONAS to minimize the project’s long-term value erosion and optimize the development and production activities in Malaysia, in line with its efforts to reduce costs and increase the efficiency of its operations,” the Malaysian state-owned firm said in the July 11 press release.
