Malaysia's THHE Not Given More Time from JX Nippon to Complete Layang FPSO
TH Heavy Engineering Berhad, an offshore oil and gas facilities fabricator, clarified Tuesday that the firm is not aware of the one year extension given by Japan's JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration (Malaysia) Ltd. to complete the floating, production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit for the Layang field in Block SK10 offshore Sarawak, Malaysia as reported May 28 by a local media, it said in a filing on Bursa Malaysia.
