Gas issues could spur exploration offshore Malaysia

Dateline 2019-06-24, Offshore:

Malaysia’s need for additional gas supplies could trigger a new round of upstream investment in Southeast Asia, according to Wood Mackenzie.

There have been multiple breakdowns in the Sabah-Sarawak gas pipeline and Petronas’ large Kasawari gas project offshore Sarawak has still to receive the go-ahead.

This has resulted in a short-term supply problem for Malaysia’s Bintulu MLNG plant, and the shortage could continue until at least 2025, when new fields are due to come onstream such as Kasawari, Jerun, Timi, Rosmari, and Marjoram.
