Petronas Signs PSC for Offshore Block F14 in Southern Gabon

Malaysia's national oil and gas company Petroliam Nasional Berhad (Petronas), via its wholly owned subsidiary Petronas Carigali International E&P B.V., has signed a Production Sharing Contract (PSC) for Block F14 with the Republic of Gabon.

The offshore block is located in southern Gabon and measures an approximate 965 square miles (2,500 square kilometers) surface area in water depth ranging from 6,561 feet to 9,842 feet (2,000 meters to 3,000 meters).

Petronas will operate the block with an 80 percent interest, while the Government of Gabon owns the remaining 20 percent interest.

The signing of the PSC took place at the Arambo Building, Libreville. Petronas was represented by its Vice President of Exploration International, Effendy Cheng Abdullah. The Republic of Gabon was represented by H.E. Etienne Dieudonne NGOUBOU from the Ministry of Petroleum and Hydrocarbons and H.E. Christophe AKAGHA MBA from the Ministry of Economy and Prospective.

Speaking at the event, Effendy Cheng said, “The signing marked an important milestone as Petronas is re-entering the Republic of Gabon, now focusing on the deep water pre-salt play.”
