EnQuest to Partner With Petronas Unit to Develop Malaysia Offshore Block
EnQuest PLC (ENQ.LN) has been awarded a contract to develop an offshore block in Malaysia, expanding its footprint in the Southeast Asian nation as the government seeks to boost oil-and-gas exploration.
London- and Stockholm-listed EnQuest said Wednesday that it would enter into a production-sharing contract to operate Block PM409 with an 85% participating interest. Petronas Carigali, a unit of Malaysian state oil company Petroliam Nasional Bhd., or Petronas, will own the remaining 15%, EnQuest said.
The block, which EnQuest said contains "several undeveloped discoveries," measures about 1,700 square kilometers in waters about 70 meters to 100 meters in depth. EnQuest said the companies are committed to drilling align="justify">The PM409 block lies next to another offshore field known as PM8/Seligi, which EnQuest acquired from ExxonMobil in 2014. EnQuest has estimated that PM8/Seligi contains around 1.8 billion barrels of oil-equivalent.
