Exclusive: Shell-Total deal delayed by Malaysia-Brunei spat

April 19, 2020

Dateline 2020-02-28, Energy Voice:

Malaysia has revoked a cross-border agreement with Brunei to jointly develop fields along the Malaysian-Brunei maritime boundary.

The move jeopardises Total’s proposed sale of its Block CA-1 to Shell, as well as various offshore production-sharing contracts, including the Shell-led Gumusut-Kakap project.

Industry sources in Malaysia confirmed that Petronas halted discussions early February regarding unitisation and joint collaboration on several upstream projects straddling the maritime boundary, or that are located in Blocks CA-1 and CA-2 in the demarcated Malaysia Brunei Commercial Arrangement Area (CAA).

Malaysia’s Petronas, Total sign HOA on development of offshore sour gas field

April 17, 2012

Dateline 2012-03-28:

Malaysia’s Petronas and Total of France have signed a heads of agreement to jointly study the development and production of a high carbon dioxide gas field offshore Sarawak in eastern Malaysia, the state-owned oil and gas company said Wednesday.
The K5 gas field, discovered in 1970, is a sour gas field with an up to 70% carbon dioxide content. To develop and produce such a field requires extensive study and research, and if it results in the production of gas, K5 would be the first gas field with more than 50% carbon dioxide to be developed in Malaysia, Petronas said.

Another week, another scan of the Saturday Star newspaper. Here’s a list of job ads in the paper:

  • First off, Synergy is looking for 5 lead safety engineers and 3 lead process engineers. Visit the Synergy website for contact details. And safety specialists. Ah, heck. If you have more than 5 years experience in O&G, apply. If you have less than 5, send a donation to the offshore account, and still get abuse.
  • Nippon Oil Exploration (lovingly known as NOEX) is looking for a contract engineer and project engineer.

Sigh, since I have moved with Synergy out of KL, will you patronise Chee Meng in my memory? Or invite me to meetings around Bukit Bintang at lunchtime? Is he doing packet specials?

Maybe I should change loyalty to Pakeeza, which is a bit closer to the office.
