SapuraKencana Secures Approval for Eastern Malaysia Gas Field Development



Malaysia's SapuraKencana Energy (SKE) announced Wednesday that it has secured approval from national oil firm Petronas for the SK310 BK15 gas field development project, offshore eastern Malaysia.

The B15 field was discovered in December 2010. It is located in the SK310 production sharing contract area. The development will comprise a central processing platform with a 21-mile gas evacuation pipeline to be tied into existing infrastructure.

SapuraKencana said the B15 field is expected to produce 100 million cubic feet of gas per day for Petronas's LNG complex in Bintulu, Sarawak.

Commenting in a company statement, SapuraKencana Petroleum Berhad CEO Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Shahril Shamsuddin said:

"The FDP approval from PETRONAS marks SKE's first development in the upstream gas project in Malaysia. We will continue to pursue future gas development projects from our other successful gas discoveries in Malaysia which is part of SKE's portfolio today."

SKE operates the SK310 production sharing contract with a 30-percent participating interest.
